    Heat Ray



    The U.S. military has developed a non-lethal ray gun that makes people feel like they're on fire. Yes! It's supposed to be used in places like Iraq and Afghanistan (where else?) in order to disperse crowds and get people to cooperate. It uses millimeter electromagnetic waves to penetrate the skin and raises body temperature to 130 degrees Fahrenheit near instantly. Combine this with other top notch U.S. military technology and it's pretty easy to see why we're number one, now and forever.

    This is some pretty old news, though I found it pretty interesting, especially with the vid.

    I've heard about this. It should seem useful. I'd like to see it working in an actual situation with a crowd though.

    That would be pretty awesome to use in a riot.

    They have ones they use that use sound waves for the same purpose. Kinda, cool, but I have yet to see footage of it actually working to disperse a crowd.

    Yeah, I remember reading about this quite a while back. If the development of weapons continue to advance in this way, the extinction of the human race is not so far off into the future.

    Yeah if you stayed in it for more than 5 seconds I'm pretty sure 130 degrees would do some damage to organs and things.

    130 sounds lethal... perhaps a silent killer... no sounds or flash for at night time.

    maybe it's like that lovely heat index...

    ...current temperature is 100 degrees but it feels like 130!

    By increasing the core body temperature, the damage caused to the internal organs would be quite lethal. Therefore, I would personally consider this to be a lethal weapon also.

    How can something that raises your body temperature to 130 be nonlethal?

    You get brain damage when your body temp rises above 106.
    You want to sit down but you sold your chair.
    So you just stand there.
