They did it!!
An American research firm has invented the first Functional Force Field. I’m really bummed they called it something stupid. But the “Plasma Valve” blocks the transmission of air through a sealed tube in less than one nanosecond. A little more work and I think we’ve got it.
Now if only they could make them portable and maybe get rid of that pesky 15000 degrees thing.
