Laser Weapon System Creates Working Ray Gun
The future is here and the robot wars of Hollywood’s imagination are nearly upon us.
The Navy revealed their latest weapon on Tuesday, a giant laser beam capable of destroying drone planes or enemy rockets as they approach U.S. ships.
Known as the Laser Weapon System, or LaWS, this new technology should be pretty handy when enemy robot armies begin invading our shores.
Why are we spending boatloads of money developing a technology to defend ourselves against technology that very few countries currently have?
Because soon enough they will, and once the robot wars start, we don’t want to be the ones wishing that we had a robot-killing laser.
