Boeing gets patent for a shockwave attenuation system

In science fiction, force fields act as a defense against enemy fire. This month, Boeing got a patent for generating force fields that keep shockwaves from harming military vehicles. The Boeing Company's patent, "Method and system for shockwave attenuation via electromagnetic arc," was filed in May 2012.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'd like to see how effective this is. Seems like it could be a great way to protect the troops.

Very interested to see how well this tech works. One step closer to real force fields.
