Non-Lethal Weapons: Technologies & Global Market - 2012-2020

Over the next ten years, the Non-Lethal Weapons (NLW) market is forecasted to emerge as a key domain for asymmetric warfare and law enforcement technology providers. Governments worldwide have undoubtedly understood the function of non-lethal weapons following lessons learned in Egypt, Israel, Iraq and Afghanistan. Unforeseen street riots and mass demonstrations over the last decade have revealed the loopholes in the security dogma of the 21st century. There is a growing demand from combatant commanders, law enforcement officers and political establishments for NLW capabilities. This demand is driven by the need to help them win the hearts and minds of...

MIT Camera Captures One Trillion Frames per Second

A team of researchers over at MIT might have just broken a new record. They’ve created “ the world’s slowest fastest camera ,” which is able to shoot one trillion frames per second. To put the speed into perspective: one trillion seconds is over 31,688 years. If you then take one second of footage on this camera, and played it back at 30 fps, it would still take you over 1,000 years to watch it, according to Wired.com . (If you decide to host that sort of movie night, please don’t invite us over.) Led by Ramesh Raskar, an...
