The Military Weapon of the Future Is a Screaming Ball of Plasma That Terrifies Enemies

The future of military warfare might not be a bullet or a missile — it could be, quite simply, scaring the bejesus out of people.

The U.S. Department of Defense's Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Program is getting ready to test what they're calling the Laser Induced Plasma Effect, a weapon that would hit targets with a blue ball of plasma — the state of matter just a little more solid than gas — and create an extremely loud noise.

The idea here: Instead of riddling a target full of holes, soldiers could stun them with an explosive scream-like sound, sending them into a panic.
