A Laser you can hear

Military tech

Right now, the Pentagon is working on a laser system with the ability to generate plasma balls containing your voice. The result is that you will be able to send a voice message to anyone, an intruder for example, without having to speak over a loudspeaker.

The Interceptor, created by Anduril Industries, is a drone that can kill other drones. The company behind this creation believes that the ultimate way to kill incoming attack drones is by using your own drones.
