Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

All of those devices are real.

"Microwave emitters" - You can buy one of these at Walmart for around $20, they've been common in homes since the 1970s.

"Phones capable of shutting down power in a skyscraper."

While nothing I can point to, something like this isn't implausible and I wouldn't be surprised if the CIA didn't have something like it.

"Fusion reactor capable of generating clean energy."

Not sci-fi at all. Sure, it's the Nirvana of clean energy but creating nuclear fusion is already possible it's just a matter of harnessing it and controlling it inside an atmosphere and being able to generate it without the use of nuclear fission. A nuclear fusion power source would generate a fuckload of clean energy as nuclear fusion wouldn't pollute, use up scare resources and the radiation generated would be limited.
Out of hope.
