Finally! Meet the seaborne anti-pirate laser cannon.
If it works on pirates, it will work on hippies!
Sailors may soon have a weapon in their battle against sea-borne raiders: an anti-pirate laser.
BAE Systems has demonstrated its new laser system, which can temporarily blind would-be attackers.
The system would prevent pirates from being able to aim their weapons at targets, BAE claims.
But further safety testing is needed before such a system could be commercially deployed. . .
