    Default Episode on Myth Busters that proves this stuff DOES NOT WORK

    I didn't see the episode myself, but someone I know did see it and he says that the laser shields and sprays and whatever else did not work. In fact, some of the items actually INCREASED detection.

    Again, I cannot confirm this. Did anyone catch this episode? It was on about one week ago, according to him.

    Yeah I saw it. It was very lame. You could bittorrent it but IMO not worth the waste of time watching.

    Basically they tried many methods that INCREASED reflectivity, and were amazed to see the range increase :roll:

    Then did things intended to work on LIDAR and tested it with radars, etc.

    So, correct me if I'm wrong. It sounds like they only used RADAR guns? Not LIDAR?

    They did two types of things, they put stuff on a remote-control car, and tested it with a Stalker Lidar unit, then did stuff on a real car (a poor classic Cadillac, very sad) with a radar, as I recall...

Had they put VEIL on a normal car and tested it Veil Guy would be bathing in Benjamins right now

    Perhaps the reason Crazy is that those products factually work.

    No myths. :wink:

    If I recall correctly they hung a disco ball from the rearview mirror & covered the car entirely with aluminum foil I don't think the aluminum for would aid in jamming lidar!

    Yes. they also shot out peices of aluminum foil out a cannon, had a cd hanging from the mirror. Painted a car with all black flat paint. Put aluminum foil all over the car like someone else said. Took apart a microwave and hooked it up to the front of the car so it shot towards the radar gun. They tried LED's on the car as well which all of the above did not work. They also used Reflective strips on the RC Car

    NO VEIL, No Laser Shield were used!
