    "powered by static electricity"

    The manufacturers seem to have found a way around the laws of physics. Impressive.

    I was unsure if I should laff or be shocked, the BBC never does Onion style satire so shocked it was.

    This scam has been going on for years, originally with a device called 'Sniffex':
    SNIFFEX Europe | Worldwide Exclusive Distributor | SNIFFEX®PLUS | The Handheld Explosives Detection Device

    It's exactly what it looks like: a telescopic radio antenna mounted on a handle.
