Well, it looks like Ghostbusters fans can finally go out and bust some heads… in a spiritual sense, of course.
Interesting that the Spengler name is dropped in the design too.
SONY DEVELOPS THE WORLD’S FIRST GHOST-CATCHING DEVICE
– The Proton PackTM will be the first of its kind to capture ectoplasmic matter –
Tokyo, Japan, April 1, 2016 – Sony Corporation (“Sony”) announced today that it has successfully perfected the Proton PackTM (#protonpack), a product designed to capture content from a parallel dimension.
The Proton PackTM is equipped with a state-of-the-art, miniaturized superconducting synchrotron, which accelerates injected protons from a hydrogen plasma cell. Superconducting temperatures are maintained by a liquid helium reservoir, and an active cryocooler ensures that operational time vastly exceeds that available from a cryogen dewar alone. Adaptive beam-steering technology guides the proton beam to an ergonomic wand, which doubles as a beam-halo tuning cavity to provide maximum down-range accuracy. The backpack form factor allows built-in psychokinetic grounding to the user’s spinal column, eliminating spectral noise feedback loops.
In development for over 30 years, the Proton PackTM benefits from the newest innovations from Sony Corporation’s acclaimed products. Weighing 6.66 kilograms/14.68 pounds, the Proton PackTM incorporates the same STAMINA Mode featured in Sony Mobile Communications’ latest XperiaTM smartphones, allowing its user to keep the battery going longer. The Proton PackTM integrates the same super slow motion capture capability as Sony’s Cyber-shot RX series premium compact cameras, allowing users to capture the matter in 960 frames-per-second high frame rates and accurately record the movement of its target. Its embedded Sony 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector allows users to view captured matter in real time. Near Field Communications technology will make it possible to connect the Proton PackTM wirelessly to other Sony products such as BRAVIA® televisions and XperiaTM smartphones to view, forward, and share entities, redefining the terms image capture and screen grab. The Proton PackTM is water and slime-proof.
Engineers at Sony Corporation developed the 2016 Proton PackTM in collaboration with nuclear engineer and munitions expert Dr. Jillian Holtzmann. Sony President and CEO Kazuo Hirai commented “The perfection of the Proton PackTM, long a dream of the world’s greatest engineers since first pioneered by Dr. Egon Spengler of Columbia University, is an example of Sony’s relentless pursuit of innovation. It absolutely delivers the wow factor that is so important to our company mission.”
The Proton PackTM will appear in the U.S. and the UK on July 15, 2016.
