Quote:Chinese scientists claim to have built a lethal laser assault rifle that can zap a target from a kilometre away.
The handheld weapon – the ZKZM-500 – fires an invisible beam that can pass through a window.
Although it sounds like something from a James Bond movie, it is set to be deployed with China’s security forces.
While classified as “non-lethal”, the weapon’s beam is capable of burning through a person’s clothes in a few seconds and setting them ablaze, reports the South China Morning Post.
One of the laser gun’s developers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences who wished to remain anonymous said the burning pain it inflicts “will be beyond endurance”.
