Well a quick look at the Wiki page and it sounds not a million miles away from electrolytic. Controlling the when & how big a bang is the issue...if memory serves you can get a bigger bang from a low voltage cap when over volted, or you get a fizzle. One of my first designs was for a 'gun' that fired caps across the school lab! Also the name Termite-Thermite name was used for a USB packet reader I worked on... (based on the Termite comms program)
