UK Police To Deter Rioters by Blinding Them With Lasers
Dec 13, 2011 11:15
The British has developed a laser rifle which can project a wall of light and temporarily blind rioters. Its like trying to fight Gandalf the White. Impossible.
According to the UK Telegraph getting blasted with the Orwellian light is akin to staring at the sun.
The laser, resembling a rifle and known as an SMU 100, can dazzle and incapacitate targets up to 500m away with a wall of light up to three metres squared. It costs £25,000 and has an infrared scope to spot looters in poor visibility.
