An EMP generator is a device that creates an electromagnetic pulse which disrupts electronics from about a meters range. It works by sending an electric current through a magnetic field, in most cases, this is a magnetic coated copper wire. 

It may be illegal to use such devices for malicious purposes, but if you have good intention and know some basic electronics, then this how-to video from FPS Weapons will show you how to make an EMP generator from home. Be very careful though, as the high voltage capacitor will deliver a very painful shock if it comes in contact with you. 

You will need some pretty specific tools and equipment too, so best not to try this as your first home electronic project. First off, you will need to find a 10,000-volt neon sign transformer. 

You will also need a classic dolphin torch, which you’ll use to actually build the generator in. So once done, it is pretty cleverly designed. 

The FPS weapons channel describes themselves as ‘ a channel in which I show you guys how to make homemade weapons and gadgets as well as cool inventions.’ You’ll find educative how-to videos on everything from how to make an air-powered hand rifle to homemade pepper spray.
