Those explosive fuses are cool.

For one thing, they don't actually have anything explosive in them. - I believe it's just graphite, which doesn't react well to "too much" power going through it. - but that's actually just a small physical effect, it's the compression inside the housing that causes it to "blow" apart - the same way a pipe bomb works.

Out in the open, it doesn't do much at all.
