Last year, the U.S. Air Force released information about, and this photo of, a PHaSR, or Personnel Halting and Stimulation Response system. It is a prototype laser weapon that generates light capable of temporarily impairing a person's vision. The prototype is obviously much larger than the "Star Trek" version, but the concept is there. And don't forget the Taser.
