    German Laser Weapons

    http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2013/01/...-laser-weapon/

    Germany has created a laser weapon capable of shooting down drones, artilary fire and other such targets.

    I just thought this was cool and it makes me wonder what kind of tech the worlds militaries really have.

    Star Trek indeed.

    There are already projects under way on cloaking, transporting (no faxing), laser weapons and physichists are making noise about a theoretical way to travel faster than light.

    Everyone knows the Germans build good stuff
    "Giving to the poor is an essential part of Christian morality. I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give. I’m afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare... If our charities do not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say they are too small. There ought to be things that we’d like to do but cannot do because our charitable expenditure excludes them." --C.S. Lewis

    Drinking a German Beer that I got while driving on the Autobahn coming home from an old German now American base.

    I feel very connected to this story. Or maybe I'm just drunk

    It says in this story that they are going to use the laser on drunk drivers.

    You guys are such eggheads... Where are your priorities? You obviously have no idea what society really cares about. Have you seen the latest episode of honey booboo? It's all about Kim and kanye. Oh and who the next bachelor chooses

    Ohhh, I see what you're saying..

    We shouldn't be focused on the lasers themselves, but the targets. Brilliant!

    July 2010. American used a 32kW laser. German one is 50 kW. I am certain we have a similar or better laser.
