Remember the Ray Gun that 60 minutes reporter David Martin went face to face with earlier this year (see below video)? Well, now it’s taking to the skies. Previously the gun was limited to ground vehicles due to its size, but now thanks to a funding bump Raytheon has managed to shrink the nonlethal weapon to a size suitable for aircrafts. They’ve also managed to update the targeting system and enabled it to fire at multiple targets at once.
So next time you decide to protest and you hear the churn of a military helicopter, just remember that you might be minutes away from having your heart boiled.
