"Something similar could be found in some weapons"
Could something similar be found in a gun? None that I know of. bomb? This is what I had in mind. sword? bow? arrow?
In a store, would it be for sale? Yes. Although it would be very little like the one in this puzzle.

Hmm, does this appear within that masterpiece of a first chapter of Mostly Harmless? Is this about that ship computer that cannot assess itself, because the module for assessing itself is damaged?

****************SPOILER
A ship floats though deep space when it is hit by an asteroid. Normally the ship computer, which is the only individual onboard not cryogenically frozen, would have all sorts of programs to detect and deal with this. Unfortunately, the part of the ship taken out by the asteroid was the part that dealt with asteroid detection. So, for the moment, everything seemed fine.
