Faraday cages. Never forget.

A while ago I discussed the importance of shielding your electronics in the future in the context of Terra Nova. Having recently watched The Matrix, I was reminded that despite being one of the most awesome films of the 1990s (and incidentally one of the greenest films ever made), it also suffered from a serious lack of electronic shielding. The ridiculous scene where Neo is stuck in the Matrix and the squiddies are attacking could have been avoided completely with an appropriately positioned faraday cage.

I promise right now that should I ever write a sci-fi novel, at no point will anyone fail to shield their electronics.
