EMP Pearls are small, round EMP grenades designed to look like harmless beads and can be worn as jewelry or carried without much hassle. Each EMP Pearl is covered with a dark iridescent coating to mimic the appearance of a real black pearl with a rainbow of subtle undertones. The EMP pearls are darkly coated so as to be easily distinguished from its sister, the white Stun Pearl. There is a small metal pin in each EMP Pearl that can be used as a jewelry hook, and removing the pin will activate the effects of the EMP Perl. Five seconds after the pin is removed, the pearl will explode and release a ~3m radius charge. The effects of the EMP Perl can render most electronics and droids within the radius damaged or disabled. The EMP Perl does not affect organics, however it will affect any electronics, armor systems or cybernetics attached to any organic within range. The lasting effects of the EMP depend on the affected electronic or droid in question and can be anywhere from a few seconds to a few hours.
In essence, the EMP Perl is a standard EMP grenade re-designed to be compact and convert for espionage and military use, but can also serve as protection for the average civilian.
