Military laser creates voices out of thin air

The Pentagon has been working on a new non-lethal weapon that can make people hear voices and sounds.
Developed as part of the US military's Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Program (JNLWD), the chilling invention is designed to disperse crowds, quell riots and discourage violence.

Those in the firing line will start to hear words or sounds as if from thin air, making it possible to discourage a riotous mob by, for example, making them believe that they are being fired upon.

Specific individuals can also be manipulated by having them hear a disembodied voice.

The new weapon uses two lasers. The first shoots a burst of focused light for 10-15 seconds, ripping the electrons from air molecules and forming plasma. The second laser then shoots at this plasma field, manipulating it in such a way so as to produce light and noise.

With enough precision, this audio can be directed at a specific individual without anyone else actually being able to hear it.

The same technology could also be used as a form of discrete, long-distance communication.

Wonder if this thing was pointed at Cuba a few months ago?

I found it interesting that it creates plasma balls. I noticed that they are found around military R&D places and are reported as UFOs sometimes.  Now we know what else they are playing with, disembodied voices through  laser technology!

From the OP: "the chilling invention is designed to disperse crowds, quell riots and discourage violence" or encourage it, if the right disembodied words are spoken among a crowd.  You don't even need undercover agents anymore.    I am also a bit concerned about the "thermal discomfort effect": what if they aim it wrongly and heat someone's skin face to 100° c? Or it's shot into an eye? Or the person's cloths are flammable?  I don't see it very non-lethal.

If it actually causes auditory hallucinations, it's more than eerie, it's downright creepy.

Yep.  They could have you hearing the mother-in-law all day and night. Lucky for us it's our own noble psycho scientists who are in there first and not some Rusiian ratbag psycho scientists.

China and Russia have both 'unveiled' new weaponry over the last couple of weeks, clearly the US military industrial complex needed to have their members measured as well.

Where did you get mind control that is a speak and light show?  Just think what Pink Floyd would have done with this technology!  They have lasers that can turn a glass window into a speaker now.

This is why American citizens need to maintain their 2nd Amendment rights.
