LOL.  Swing batter.

Seriously about the debris, I think the plan with this would be to locate the boundary barriers far enough from the facility being protected that the debris is a moot point.  I would expect fixed barriers most of the way around that facility and this movable barrier would be activated most the time; except, when deliveries needed to enter.  Ideally, there would be a dual lock with a buffer in between; so that, both barriiers would never need to be down at the same time.  

More than debris, I would be more concerned about flammable/explosive liquids, such as a semi-trailer gasoline tanker and a burning torch on the back; hence, more reason for the buffer distance requirements.With adequate buffer distance, strategically located storm drains to a holding reservoir could at least direct the flames of the gasoline truck scenerio to a mostly managed location.

This video is impressive, however I wonder if there is a way to better control the flying debris.

We take a look at 2015's top engineering schools by salary potential for undergraduate students.
If we are going to be creating a network that serves us, one of its most critical nodes will need to be ourselves. This is where wearable technology comes into play.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
