I first read about these kinds of devices in John Alexander's 1999 book Future War (Non-Lethal Weapons In Twenty-First-Century Warfare). Anyone interested in this kind of stuff should definitely pickup this book. cover

Here is more on the device, which has trialed at up to 50 meters away (source: Global Guerrillas)

I might have to pickup his newer book: cover
