Navy's Laser Beam Ship Motor Killer

While we can't bring you a shot of sharks with laser beams on their heads, I think this is about the next best thing. Here is a shot pointed out by Wired's Danger Room showing the Navy's video of their progress with laser beam technology.

Obviously they focused on the important bits and knocked out the motors on this vessel from one mile away. The applicability of this tool can prove quite useful. Just imagine those Somali Pirates and their surprise when a silent invisible ray drops their mother ship dead in the water. And I thought catching ants on fire with a magnifying glass was impressive.
