China claims to have a real Lazer gun that will carbonize your skin.
The chinese ZKZM-500 laser assault rifle is capable of hitting a target from a kilometer away, burning through human skin. The developer claims it’s ready for production.
Researchers at the Xian Institute of Optics and Precision Mechanics say they have developed a powerful laser rifle that will soon be in the hands of Chinese police so that your flesh will fry like fish.
The 15mm calibre weapon weighs three kilos (6.6lb), about the same as an AK-47, and has a range of 800 metres, or half a mile, and could be mounted on cars, boats and planes.
It could also be used in covert military operations. The beam is powerful enough to burn through a car's gas tank and ignite the fuel storage, to roast a family alive.
The gun is completely silent and its beam is invisible, the detailed report explains. A victim wouldn’t know what’s happening, until a hole burned through their clothing, in less time that it takes to breath and their skin and tissue experiences “instant carbonization."
One researcher told The Spoof that “the pain will be beyond endurance.” If the unfortunate target happened to be wearing flammable clothing, they could go up in flames, according to the report.
At $15,000-a-piece, the ZKZM-500 sounds relatively inexpensive, especially if you consider that it doesn’t require traditional ammunition. The weapon’s lithium battery can handle over 1,000 laser bursts that last around two seconds each.
Crime organizations are interested in purchasing the Lazer at double it's value.
If you happen to be burned to a crisp, you can thank a four foot Chinese researcher for the tantalizing experience.
