Electro-Muscular Disruption Device So here is how it is. In Transcendence, a Science Fiction novel that I am working on, I have this device that I could use some help in explaining how it functions. It is an EMD, an electrical weapon that disrupts muscle movement with an electric shock. This device is shaped like a small egg on its side and is mounted on the side of the barrel of a T-1 Assault Weapon (the T-1a most notably) and sighted in to use the weapon's standard IBIS sight(basically a reflex sight). Here is the trick though, I need this device to be able to fire an electric charge without the use of wires or any other assistance at short to moderate ranges. I am wondering if you guys have any ideas as to how this could be accomplished (I am open to replacing the electricity with something else if it is easier to explain that way). Thanks ahead of time. I will continue my research into this subject on my own as well, but any information or advice you could offer on this front would be greatly appreciated. Also note that the device needs to be compact, which means it can’t use an extremely huge amount of power (at least not any more than a nuclear battery could provide), and should be able to be fired repeatedly.
