Army lasers that beam messages into your head warning ‘stop or we’ll shoot’
MILITARY scientists at the Pentagon are developing 'talking' lasers which can beam warnings straight into the enemy's head from hundreds of miles away.
Weapons researchers at the Department of Defense say the hi-tech weapon will be able to send brief messages - in the form of audible speech - across combat zones.
The aircraft, ship and truck-mounted devices are being developed as part of a military initiative called the Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate.
The scientists plan to use a phenomenon of physics called the Laser-Induced Plasma formation to make the laser a reality.
First, they fire a powerful laser that creates a ball of plasma. Then, a second laser works to oscillate the plasma creating sound waves.
These intense laser bursts can then perfectly mimic human language, chief scientist Dave Law told the Military Times.
He added that the technology could be ready for battle in just five years.
A video shared to publicise the Pentagon project shows the weapon saying 'Stop or we’ll be forced to fire upon you.'

Scientists say these laser-grams will soon be able to beam hundreds of miles away.
The news will send shudders through the conspiracy theorist community who have long claimed the US government uses radio waves as part of a though-control programme.
The Pentagon has revealed it is ploughing tens of millions into developing state-of-the-art laser weapons - to ensure it doesn't lag behind Russia and China.
Army top brass have agreed to massively up their investment in directed-energy military systems, according to the US Department of Defense’s top technology adviser.
Michael Griffin, undersecretary of defense for research and engineering, said he even expects to have usable directed-energy weaponry in the hands of combat fighters in “a few years.”
The weapons could be similar to China's ZKZM-500 gun, which can "instantly carbonise" human skin and tissues, set a person on fire and make them feel "pain beyond endurance".
The Russian Navy is now testing a sinister new weapon that makes enemies hallucinate and throw up by dazzling them.
The 5P-42 Filin, a futuristic dazzler-type device, can cause troops to miss their targets by blinding them.
It can even trigger delirious conditions that make them want to be sick, according to reports.
