I meant "of a type". Don't read anything into that.

Another clue...it is not in space for long.

Oh, and a clarification on the sensor thing. Only one sensor...IR.

But now I am giving it away.

That would be it. Kinetic kill. Effectively a smart brick.

Okay campers, we're gonna get slightly lower tech here. What does this gizmo do? (I've blotted out the name printed on it for obvious reasons).

Destroys it's target with kinetic energy, i.e. it smashes into it. Ergo "smart brick".

I'm sorry to still be off topic---what is this smart brick supposed to smash into? And Buck, am I anywhere close to the c-clamp---can't be as it looks too obvious?

expat, yes it kind of resembles a C clamp but that's not what it is.
