The idea of a ray gun has been something of fantasy in our minds for the past sixty years, but it may be a reality in the not too distant future. It may not be some super weapon of mass destruction but it could potentially save the lives of many. So far this device is being developed for neutralizing electronic threats.
Pew! Pew! Soldiers with handheld energy blasters are the stuff of G.I. Joe, not real life … until now. The U.S Army is currently testing electricity guns for possible use against electronics on the battlefield. They don’t look like props from the popular cartoon show but, rather like regular standard-issue M4 rifles with a pair of antennas that shoot out from the barrel and then spread, giving the front end of the gun a musket-like shape.
