Blaststick (Explosives)
Table of Contents [hide]
Designed from the very beginning to be an exceptionally precise explosive delivery method, the Blastick has since found its use expanded far beyond what the original designer ever imagined. Intended for selective demolitions within structures, the Blastick comes with a patented NanoStuck adhesive pad on one end to affix the device to the desired surface in the required position without fear of it coming loose accidently. Little longer than a human hand, the device contains a miniature fusion spike core, which is fed by a solid state, stabilized Tritium outer cladding. When activated and the countdown completed, the fusion core ignites and actives the magno-shield within the casing. For a fraction of a second the power of a fist sized sun bores into whatever the Blastick has been attached to and cuts a small and uniquely precise hole. Left behind is the outer casing and its burnt out magno-sheild, which falls to the ground beneath the blast mark, as the NanoStuck pad is burned away by the reaction.Given this degree of precision and the wide range of delays that can be programmed into the timer, the Blastick has found its way far, far beyond its original purpose. Like most precision explosives, it has been turned to sabotage in many instances, though the characteristic shape and behavior of the Blastick has limited its use to places that are out of sight and casual usage, as even with tampering they are almost childishly easy to diffuse. In a few widely published and particularly gruesome cases, the Blastick was even used as an assassination weapon, typically applied to helpless or otherwise restrained victims with the entire struggle and eventual death recorded and broadcast via hacked news feeds or the like as political or criminal statements. Since then the makers of Blasticks have reworked the NanoStuck technology so as not to bond with organic surfaces such as flesh, but rumors still circulate that certain brands never adopted this modification...
