Russian scientists are allegedly developing — I’m going to call it a “ray gun” — that will turn anyone it hits into a bumbling, drooling mess. A zombie.
It’ll do so by targeting the victim’s nervous system, using electromagnetic radiation to “short-circuit” their brain. Vladimir Putin himself believes it’s the perfect super-weapon, that brilliant combination of abject terror and cool, clean efficiency.
Oh and, says Putin, it’ll help Russia achieve its “political and strategic goals.”
“Extremely high doses of microwaves could stop someone’s heart from beating or disintegrate his eyeballs…”
The gun is scientifically known as a directed-energy or wave-energy weapon, and even though it sounds like something out of a science fiction novel, it’s not unprecedented.
According to Forbes, “lower dose microwave weapons” have already seen action in Russia (for crowd control), and we’d be naive to think the world’s governments haven’t been experimenting with this sort of thing for years.
