    I'm not so sure. I think the modern smartphone is of higher tech than the Enterprise communicators. Both can communicate, but only one can let you play Angry Birds and post Facebook stuff while driving through rush hour traffic.

    True, but I don't have a smart phone, still using an older flip phone by sanyo. But what I was eluding to was that cell phones were inspired by sci-fi devices like we saw on Star trek.

    The magnetic strength, being proportional to the current, you could develop a bazillion Tesla, briefly - which is all you need, by dumping the DC capacitor into a low resistance, high reactance coil. The ball would then accelerate rapidly down the barrel. BANG! For sure! Heavy, but quiet, and effective and could be made without moving parts (sans the bullet).

    Heh... Maybe. Ever heard a whole bunch of large caps dumping at once... It'll ring your bell for sure.

    Stun phasers will one day hit the market but kill phasers will be .gov and .mil only. Which leads to the ethical question, if you can have a phaser that stuns OR kills, why?

    Me, I'm holding out for the plasma rifle in 40 watt range. Hey, somebody had to say it.
