Competition: [GJW XIV Event Long] Multimedia - Technological Distinctiveness

Finished
[GJW XIV Event Long] Multimedia - Technological Distinctiveness
This competition is in the [GJW XIV Event Long] Multimedia Bin. Participating in a competition in this bin for the first time awards 6 points for your Clan. Cumulatively, the placements in this competition are worth 8.0% of placement points in this Phase. See the parent competition for detailed rules.

The backbone of much of the Collective's military might lies in their technology. Moreso now than ever before the armies of the Collective has assimilated technology into their very being.

Objective: Build a 3D object using real materials to represent an item of military technology deployed by the Collective. Submit a picture or video of the object created. Objects can be made, for example, out of cardboard, paper, LEGOs, wood or any other material. Drawing and coloring on the object is permitted for details and enhancements, but any additional work beyond that is not permitted (for example: A hand drawn background or digital art enhancements added to the image beyond simple color/contrast correction of the photo). In addition, entries will be evaluated based on the amount of original creation that goes into them. For example, a 3d printed object from a pre-made model will be evaluated along the same lines as submitting an assembled Star Wars Lego set as the entrant did not themselves create the model.

Members are encouraged to submit a written explanation of the object to orient the graders as to what it is,, but the written explanation is not part of the placement criteria other than to give context to the graders.

Grading: Submissions will be graded on originality, detail, and obvious effort expended.

Medium: Photo or Video of real object.

Item Prototype: Plasma Distortion Grenade

Description: The Plasma Distortion Grenade is based off kyber technology acquired by the Collective from their stolen holocrons. Using unstable shards of otherwise unusable kyber, the grenade creates a distortrion field that is able to compromise plasma containment fields within a fifteen meter radius and entirely degrade them at a five meter radius. The grenade is armed by twisting the upper and lower body parts until the two red dots are aligned and then released, activating the internal 3 second fuse. Unlike normal grenades, it need not be thrown immediately, but can be carried, if desired, for a further 10 seconds.
This is the duration of the distortion field.

Any contained plasma that is within the grenade's area of effect will experience field deterioration, resulting in plasma flux and sputter. If close enough to the grenade, the plasma containment field will collapse, exposing the plasma to whatever atmosphere is present. This has a remarkable deterrance effect to blaster bolts which either veer heavily to the side or "detonate" pre-emptively. However, the weapon's main benefit is against lightsabers. The blade integrity will start to falter while between 5-15 meters from the grenade, and if within 5 meters, it will fail entirely. This wil typically result in the weapon shutting off (if failsafes have been installed), or in an uncontained plasma jet spewing out from the saber hilt. In the latter case, this may be equally lethal to the saber wielder as well as anyone caught in their viscinity.

Upon expiration of the 10 second field emission, the unstable kyber shard will explode. The detonation is significant and carries concussive force, but due to the construction of the grenade does not contain significant shrapnel. It is highly advisable to throw the grenade BEFORE the field emission ends.

Field Trials Report: Further deployment of the Distortion Grenade was halted after initial field tests due to lack of further kyber material and the high unit cost. However, preliminary results were favorable and resulted in several successful battlefield interceptions of lightsaber armed foes. Doctrinal issues remain, however, and for maximum effect it was recommended to arm users with Slughthrowers instead of Blasters.
As an intriguing secondary benefit, it was postulated that some Force Users might mistake an agent carrying a Distortion Grenade as one of their own, mistaking the signature given off by the kyber shard as one coming from a lightsaber. This also potentially risks marking such individuals on the battlefield, if our enemies learn about the full power of this weapon.

The XS-C01 Neural Grenade is based in concept on the more common dioxsis grenade. However, the XS-CO1 uses a sonic waveform that is calibrated to disrupt the brain function of Force Sensitive individuals. The grenade was constructed via a coke can, a plastic 'cup' painted up to serve as the 'fuse', and a variety of model/spray paints to achieve the general look of the grenade.
