I wander if the military can or if they already use that for some kind of weapon system on a larger scale.

Seems beyond belief. I could understand a larger claw with a larger amount of water/bubbles, but it seems to be too much of an effect for the size of the claw.

I didn't know you could make air bubbles from water.

I'm in the group of "Impressive, but not "THAT" impressive! Methinks they doth embelish a little...

As for air bubbles from water, in a sense you can: Decrease the ambient pressure and you can create essentially gasesous water - cavitation from a ships screw is one of the ways this happen. But it's low pressure, not high pressure.

In theory if the temperature were high enough, the oxygen would separate from the hydrogen, or vice versa

Must be similar to the mantis shrimp (funny buggers) who create a sonic boom with their claws to stun their prey.

I'll go for a very focused shock wave, but sonic boom? Hotter than the sun? I can't go there.

I just had to google it. They're not kidding. Check out the Snapping Effect section.

precooked shrimp? Still a good vid from BBC. I agree with navy.... hotter than the sun? would not the water adjacent to the "boom" vaporize and absorb the energy developed by the boom?

Read the wiki. Temps were seen to be in the 5000 range. which is almost as hot as the surface of the sun (5800).

From NatGeo, these quotes are in adjacent paragraphs.

In sonoluminescence, the peak intensity of the emitted light is at a short wavelength. This indicates that the temperature inside the bubble is at least 10,000 degrees Kelvin (18,000 degrees Fahrenheit).

The researchers say the light emitted from the snapping shrimp's bubbles suggests that the temperature inside the bubbles must be at least 5,000 degrees Kelvin (8,540 degrees Fahrenheit) at the time of collapse. Otherwise, we wouldn't see it, said Lohse.
