Remember the US Military ray gun that makes people feel like they're on fire? Well, 60 Minutes sent out a reporter to see if he could take the heat. Standing in plain view of the ray gun made his body feel like "scalding water," so David Martin attempted, with little success, to hide behind a piece of plywood and later a mattress. Some claim they can only take the heat ray 4 - 5 seconds, so when David tried it we think he only made it 2 seconds, even if he did say, "ONE ONE THOUSAND TWO ONE THOUSAND THREE ONEEEAAHHHHRRHHR" [CBS via TechEBlog]
@k2snowboards88: "I don't know what this is supposed to accomplish. Its just going to make a riot even more dangerous when people start trampling each other to get away..."
So why not just aim at the rear of the crowd first?
I bet the next question of the generals would be "When can I get this in a portable version?"
