A new weapon in the U.S. arsenal

The U.S. military has developed a way to beam millimeter waves to disable the enemy, according to CNN. If caught in the path of the waves, the effect is similar to a sensation that one's skin is about to catch fire.

More from Reuters, here.

The weapon is non-lethal, and virtually harmless once the subject is no longer in the path of the waves.

Although it is not set to be manufactured until 2010, this will no doubt be a critical weapon to fight terror in urban settings.
