  1. Great question. I am considering moving to a place that has a lot of vehicle break-ins and I have been told to leave my car unlocked and the windows down and then maybe the thiefs won’t break a window but sometimes they still break windows anyway because they are stupid drug addicts and are in a hurry and just go with their M.O. of break and grab. I have seen lots of cars there with the back windshields broken and covered in plastic. So, I want a solution that will prevent a stupid drug addict from breaking my window. Something like a car alarm that detects when someone is close to the car and gives them a verbal warning with bright lights shining in their face and then if they make a swinging motion with their hand, a net pops out and grabs them and then they are hit with mace, pepper spray and spray paint. It would be an expensive system and the liability would be too great but surely someone can come up with a reasonable system to stop a thief in the act. Maybe a robotic dog with huge fangs in the car that comes to life and starts barking ferociously and scares the criminal away. Even if they know it is a robotic dog, make it mean enough that they wouldn’t want to take their chances with it. Maybe the robotic dog is programmed to “bite” the thief and fasten handcuffs to the thief’s arm and secure the thief to the vehicle. The apprehension level would only be activated if a window was broken so the liability would be low. A robot with all bark and no bite would eventually stop being a deterrent. The barking dog part should be relatively easy. We just need a robot dog head that moves toward the would be thief and moves around a bit as the mouth opens and closes to the sound of a ferocious dog. Anyone have any better ideas? It must prevent the break in, not just record it or sound an alarm after the break in.
