I bought a brand new 1,000 watt microwave oven and took it completely apart (!). I fabricated an 8" X 12" Rectangular Conical Horn Antenna out of sheet metal, which i installed to the Output Flange of the Magnetron Tube. (which produces the microwave radiation). The Magnetron is powered by the Oven's 2,500 Volt High Voltage/Filament Transformer, Plus the Rectifier Diode and Capacitor that forms the Voltage Doubler that supplies the Magnetron with -5,000 Volts DC. The 120 Volts AC. is supplied through a Relay, whose Coil is powered by a Passive Infrared Body Heat/Motion Sensor.
The whole thing is mounted on a wooden pallet inside a room, which is surrounded and hidden by a large thin cotton bed sheet. (which is transparent to microvave radiation). The horn antenna, of course, points out the favorite window used by the crooks to enter the house. The IR. Motion Sensor is placed at a strategic location outside the house.
The way the thing works is as follows: The crook stakes out the house, finds the "unprotected" window, Stares in the window, looks at a Boombox and an old VCR. placed as bait. The IR. Sensor picks up his Body Heat, Firing up the Magnetron and aiming 1,000 Watts at 2.45 Ghz. Directly to his face. Withing 15 Seconds, the Corneas of Both his Eyes WILL TURN WHITE, (LIKE EGG WHITES) PERMANENTLY!!!. Poor guy wont have a clue as to why he lost his Eyesight. The ONLY way to recover his eyesight is to have BOTH CORNEAS REPLACED WITH NEW ONES, (Transplanted), at a high cost to him.
Let's see someone else Gross me out on this one!!!.....
Funny how in the states you can shoot someone breaking into your house, but you can't set a trap for them.
