Would you buy a non-lethal weapon to protect your home?
No, it isn't a fake weapon from the realm of sci-fi films, this is the latest concept device from designer Isaac Richardson and yes, it is a laser gun.
However, the difference between this laser gun and those in Star Trek is that this one is non-lethal. Designed for those who are looking for a little added, futuristic protection for their home, according to Yanko Design this is what it does:
"[The gun] pulses an invisible laser that super-heats the surrounding air. The resulting plasma explosion delivers a swift kick to the intruder while electro magnetic waves induce temporary paralysis."
No, we're really not making this up.
You'll be happy to know the gun isn't all laser beams, paralysis and fighting aliens, but it comes with a camera and a microphone too, so you can record any nasty incidents.
Now before you get your spandex super hero outfit on and start practicing your light saber moves, you should know the new weapon is only a prototype right now. However, it could signal a new era of security devices that we're a little worried about already.
