Please take this seriously.

I've been thinking. How far away in the future is laser type guns? I know many places use lasers to cut into sheet metal, so a highly concentrated laser can definitely cut. If the concentration of the laser and the power and intensity of the laser is high enough, couldn't it be used as a weapon? It'd probably be very expensive right now, but in the future, I see this as a probably weapon. Light speed fastness too.

only problem, lasers seem to go on for a long distance, so a extremely powerful one would do more damage than you would want it, so how would you get it to stop and not keep on going or to stop at hitting one thing, also if you miss it could go on forever, the shot.

Its gonna be a say day when it is. How will people defend themselves against crazy people? Tactical Shields? Not if the lasers can cut through metal.

The military is developing an aircraft that has a laser that will be used to shoot down missles.

It's big... basically a 747, but the entire space that would normally be used for seating is used for the laser apparatus.

I thought it was mostly a tank buster.

Yes. Yes we do.

true.

i think laser type weapons in the sense of "omg i'ma fiya my lazor!!" r a long way off but death ray type weapons r in the works.

they're bloody massive though and cause no harm. they just make the victim feel like they're skin is on fire

I thought a weapon to that effect already exists?

They already made it. Its a laser that makes you feel like you're on fire. It's used to force criminals to drop their weapons.

already exists

but its doesn't instantly slice through skin, just superheats the fluids in a persons body where the beam touches, and causes pain...

i think its more of a shock weapon

they already have technology in nasa that they use to cut stuff, but if you accidently walk into it - it'll cut you right in half, and yes lasers go far, but because the earth is round, it'll just go into space if it misses something

i meant like we're moving closer to deathray weapons in general. i don't think lasers are that practical because don't they glasd or crystal to reflect/refract light? i don't think glass would b very sturdy in battle.

Glass is quite strong, and you can use a gas, which I believe they do in most cases.
