    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
    The word you are looking for is very probably "complement", not "compliment". As in "Favors and Kanter will likely complement each other nicely". Although... depending on how impressive a given play is, they may compliment each other nicely as well.

    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
    Corbin sucks.

    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.
    Build a man a fire; keep him warm for a day. Light a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of this life.

    Repeating the same actions and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.
