    China’s Handheld Laser

    This is a new breakthrough in modern warfare!

    CHINA’S HAND-HELD LASER RIFLE CAN SET YOU ON FIRE

    According to the South China Morning Post, China now has a handheld ‘laser rifle’ that can burn people and objects from a half-mile away.

    The ZKZM-500 laser assault rifle is classified as being “non-lethal” but produces an energy beam that cannot be seen by the naked eye but can pass through windows and cause the ‘instant carbonisation’ of human skin and tissues.

    Y'know there is a reason that they're calling it "non-lethal". Turns out the US pushed through a UN treaty years ago against the use of lasers as lethal weapons. Guess someone in DC didn't like the idea of spending the money on replacing all our conventional small arms infrastructure with lasers. Like most arms control treaties, its a dud. It makes sense for China to lead the way on laser weapons, since their national goal is to displace the US from its position of global dominance and disruptive technologies like lasers are one way to do it. My bet is that if this laser isn't capable of an easy kill at closer ranges that it will be refined to the point that it can crispy critter someone to about the range of a conventional assault rifle at some point in the near future.

    Just the thought of the Wicked Witch of the Midwest back in the White House is enough to terrify me.

    Good point. Strikes me that the best use of the thing could be for long range kills, if they can keep the beam collimated tightly enough. Don't need to worry about windage or drop, just put the pretty cross hairs on the target and fry away. At close range not sure what it would do to ESAPI.

    Right, I was definitely thinking mirrors, but disco ball would have much better flex properties.
