Future weapons

'The US Army is developing a truck-mounted laser weapon to destroy rockets, artillery shells and mortars.
Aerospace giant Boeing has been awarded a contract to start on the first phase of the project - designing a control system for the laser beam.

The solid state laser weapon would eventually be mounted on a 10-tonne, eight-wheel-drive tactical truck.

The American military has several programmes underway to develop battlefield lasers.'

I seem to remember reading an article about all sorts of other weapons a while back, the one that sticks in my mind are the sonic weapons which use sound waves to incapicitate an enemy, a bit like the Brown Note episode of South Park.

Anyone else know anything about this or any other developments? I think the whole thing is quite interesting. Maybe thats just me though? :?
