Star Trek Force Field Developed

Even though it is April 1st, the news is not fake. According to reports in the media, a force field like the type you have seen in Star Trek - The Original Series has been developed by those boffins at Boeing Aircraft and Defence Company. However at the moment, the actual patent that has been designed only applies to small vehicles such as a military humvee as the picture below illustrates. Any items would not be able to hit and destroy the vehicle. Future developments could lead to one that could protect the USS Enterprise NCC 1701D for example. If we ever develop a space probe travelling faster than light, its going to need a shield to protect it from the smallest of dust and this could well provide the solution. One final thing... 'Shields to Maximum.'1
