Holy moly I didn't know we already had this technology built!

Imagine getting hit with a blast from that...your insides would be cooked within seconds.

How do you know it's some kind of super pooper death ray gun and not a small output prototype device? ANy links and/or other pics?

Thanks for the link.

I have two comments:

(a) it's not ionizing all right, but how come there are strict standards on the emissions from radars and microwave ovens, that produce harmful effects similar to those of ionizing radiation? Given all teh fuss of cancers caused by mobule phones, I'm willing to believe that one huge zap of MW is just as harmful as 1000 year exposure to the cellphone.

(b) non-lethal is a misnomer. They say that injuries are limited by limiting the exposure. If I'm followed by a beam of MW energy, I'll be rather painfully scolded over most of my body and die of burns. Or, if the beam is stationary, and I collapse of the initial pain and just stay there, I'll be very thoroughly cooked. BBQ, anyone?
