New laser weapon with Star Trek sound-effects

(via devnull)

The Air Force is testing a new high-energy laser weapon (in a simulator), but they had to add sound-effects, since the real weapon doesn’t make noise, and “pilots don’t know when the weapon has fired if it doesn’t make a noise” according to one of the developers, who added “We got the noise for this one from Tactical Air Systems. I think they got it from ‘Star Trek’ or something, but I’m not sure. You’d think a bunch of nerds like us would know that.”

Uh, oh, I think I smell an MPAA lawsuit!
