Real life catches up with Star Trek

HSV Technologies Inc., of San Diego, California is developing a non-lethal weapon that uses ultraviolet laser beams to harmlessly immobilize people and animals at a distance. The Phaser-like device uses two beams of UV radiation to ionize paths in the air along which electrical current is conducted to and from the target. In effect, the beams create wires through the atmosphere wherever they are pointed.

The current within these beams is a close replication of the neuro-electric impulses that control skeletal muscles. It is imperceptible to the target person because it differs from his own neural impulses only in that its repetition rate is sufficiently rapid to tetanize muscle tissue. (Tetanization is the stimulation of muscle fibers at a frequency which merges their individual contractions into a single sustained contraction.)

No retinal damage can occur because the cornea absorbs all ultraviolet radiation at the wavelengths used. Moreover, the beams are too weak to produce photokeratitis (corneal inflammation) unless they are directed at the eyes for several minutes. In addition, the current they transmit is insufficient to affect the muscles of the heart and diaphragm.
See Ocular Safety of the Tetanizing Beam Weapon

Our electrical beam weapon has a far longer potential range than its nearest competitor, the wire-based Taser® .

Successful proof-of-principle tests have been performed at the University of California at San Diego, and further refinements using novel laser designs are forthcoming.

Although the smallest laser now available for this application is the size of a carry-on suitcase, a hand-held version should become feasible with only modest advances in laser technology.

Also under development is an engine-disabling variation for use against the electronic ignitions of automobiles. The engine-disabling version should be able to operate with off-the-shelf lasers because it would be carried aboard police patrol cars.

Immobilize at 1/4 mile?? Wih all the sicko's out there today, driveby's at the school,grocery store,church's,etc. will surely increase with this silient weapon.BG's and Punks hiding up in tree's,back of vans,rooftops,etc.tormenting people with these things will surely increase.

Most stun guns are only a clipped resistor or 2 from being lethal. Imagine being able to electrocute someone from a 1/4 mile away. Body armor doesn't stop electricity, why steel trauma plates would actually make it MORE dangerous than no armor. Pumping up the power to the UV laser or shifting the frequency gives you a blinding laser (corena opacitation). And no ballistics, no noise, no witnesses to help catch the perp either.

It'll never fly in amerika. Too dangerous for us "peasant scum" to be trusted with. They don't trust us with guns, what makes you think blinding-shocking laser weapons will be? Never happen.

Oh, but I forgot, the police will have these weapons, "for the childrens sake", of course. :rolleyes:
