Military develops non-lethal heat ray.

Military Heat RayYesterday the staff at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia gave a media demonstration of a new non-lethal weapon that gives troublemakers a full-body hot-foot.  The device concentrates magnetic energy into a beam that heats skin to 130 degrees F., making people feel like they're going to catch fire without actually hurting them.  (I wouldn't be surprised if harmful side-effects are discovered later, though.)  The range of the weapon is about 1500 feet.  It's expected to be put into production around 2010 and to be use for crowd control and military defense.  I think it looks a lot like burning ants with a magnifying glass...  an anty-personnel weapon.
