A new kind of security device can be used to keep cars and pedestrians safe from a malicious attacker by wrapping it in a protective film.
The technology, called “bunnings,” has been developed by the University of Cambridge and the University College London and was used by the UK government to prevent the theft of $1.4 million worth of gold from the National Bank of England (NBU).
A video of the incident, posted on YouTube by the BBC, showed how the security film was wrapped around a car.
The video was released in response to a request from the BBC for a story on the development.
The film was developed by researchers at the University’s department of chemistry and applied physics, who found that by wrapping the film around the vehicle, the driver could detect when it was parked in the middle of the road and could slow it down enough to avoid a collision.
In an email to Ars, a spokesperson for the University told us that the film was made using the Bunnings anti-vehicle technology, which was tested with a Nissan Sentra and was approved by the NBU for use in London’s parking lots.
“This technology was developed to help protect vehicles parked in protected parking lots and parking lots with security measures such as CCTV and a driver monitoring system,” the spokesperson said.
“It is also used in public transport systems and on vehicles that are parked in public areas.”
The University said that while it had not tested the technology on real vehicles, it was not uncommon for “passenger cars to be parked in restricted spaces in a number of countries.”
The university did not provide any details about the specific countries where the technology was used, nor what other countries had been tested.
The University of Leicester said that it was aware of the research and would “continue to work closely with the NBA on its development and deployment of the bunnies.”
The bunnys protective film has also been used by authorities in the UK to prevent a man from driving a stolen car.
In April, the man was stopped by police in the city of Leicester after he pulled up to a busy intersection and pulled out a gold coin from his pocket, police said.
The man, whose name has not been released, was arrested after police used a video camera to capture the man’s actions.
The footage showed him pull out the coin and place it on the ground before pulling away.
The NBU said that the driver of the stolen car, who was arrested on suspicion of stealing gold coins, would be charged with theft.
The car was eventually recovered and the driver was released without charge.
