“The pain will be unbearable,” — said one of the creators of the machine.
ZKZM-500 has a caliber of 15 mm and weighs just three pounds. Rifle refers to non-lethal weapons — with the defeat of the skin is charred, also the rifle is able to blind the enemy and damage the retina of the eye. The laser is configured for the invisible frequency, so the human eye will not be able to understand where he was attacked.
