Ten Unbelievable Sci-Fi Weapons That Already Exist (With Pictures)

7. Military Lasers

We have seen plenty of laser guns in Star Wars and numerous alien invasion movies, apparently it is about to become reality now with the US and UK actively developing and testing prototypes of military lasers for purposes ranging from taking out incoming missiles to destroying unmanned drones. Not only do these ray guns look cool in the movies, they seem to be quite effective in real life too. In the year 2014, the US Navy tested their new Laser Weapons System or LaWS aboard the USS Ponce in the Gulf. It successfully took out a UAV and a simulated boat attacker in the test.

The LaWS converges the power of six separate solid state lasers to create a beam upto 30kW in power which can be used to fry motors, sensors and volatile explosives, including burning through metal. Also at $1 per shot, its dirt cheap (if you forget the millions that went into researching) and it is said to have a range of 10 miles. Expected to be on ships by 2017, more powerful versions of this system are sure to be on the way. On top of that the British Ministry of Defense inspired by their American counterparts has embarked on a project called the Laser Directed Energy Weapon Capability Demonstrator, aimed at designing a laser similar to the LaWS. Countries like Israel and China have also joined in on the laser arms race. At this rate, aliens may have to think twice before they invade Earth next time. Laser guns are among the 10 fantastic sci-fi weapons that already exist.
