The U.S. Army is developing new weapons that use balls of plasma to confuse enemies. The concept would create a deflection force very reminiscent of Star Wars. New Scientist notes, "The device uses a technology known as dynamic pulse detonation (DPD). A short but intense laser pulse creates a ball of plasma, and a second laser pulse generates a supersonic shockwave within the plasma to generate a bright flash and a loud bang."
