With getup reminiscent of Ghostbusters, riotous crowds may soon be quelled by slime so slippery it's impossible to stay on your feet. Wearing Ghostbuster-like backpacks, peacekeepers will be able to shoot a combination of non toxic materials that slime up mid air and fire up to 25 feet. Given neither man nor vehicle will be able to gain traction – could it actually do more damage than intended?

Implications - Peculiar gadgets and technological designers may appear to have a small target market, and yet they continue to be popular among consumers who are on a quest to have the most unusual products. Bizarre products like these Ghostbuster-like backpacks certainly do have a receptive audience and therefore should certainly not be discounted by businesses who are looking to innovate.
