US Military has Giant Ray Gun

It makes you feel like you are on fire.

Freakin lasers! Now all the military needs to do is attach them sharks: Dr. Evil style.

My favorite part of this weapon is that they call the response "the goodbye effect." You just reflexively run away when you get hit. Wired had a fun story on the weapon in December.

Good article. I wonder what they said to covince the men who volunteered as test subjects? I think the idea of mounting them to vehicles is cool enough, but having a rifle equipped laser would be fun too. Concerns about over/misuse seem minor in comparison to the fact that the technology is a non-lethal means to control crowds of people.

I guess the reporters volunteered.

Reporters eh? If I were the president I would carry one of those guns and disperse the white house press corps everytime they made me mad.

Good for classroom control, too.

Or maybe clearing out a bar at the end of the night. I think I would rather have the ray gun than hear the song "Closing Time" ever again.
