We wanted to post a quick status to let you know that despite our failed kickstarter campaign, we will still be producing the EMP Shield! Our timeline has been pushed to Q1 of 2014. In the meantime we'll be rolling in collapsable ammo-can style handles onto both the 12x12x12 and 16x16x16 enclosures. We'll be posting a few updated renderings soon. Thank you for your support!

Our powder-coated prototypes are in!

In order for our shield to provide effective emp protection we need to ensure that none of the objects stored inside the shield touch the interior walls. Details on why devices stored within cannot touch the interior walls can be found on our faraday cage post. The below qualities are what we focused on: Non-conductive [...]

Textured powder coat exterior finish

For our EMP Shield’s exterior finish we wanted something electrically conductive, very durable, yet pleasing to the eye. We’ve explored anodization, powder-coating, rubber and plastic infused coatings, and high-grade exterior paint. Time and time again, we kept coming back to powder coating. The powder used in the process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and [...]
