Soon, 'magic bullet' that floats around in midair but won't kill youApr 27, 4:34 pm
London, Apr 27 (ANI): The US army has proposed the idea of a ' magic bullet', which will hang around in the air waiting for its target.However, this far-fetched sounding piece of ammunition isn't designed to kill, the Daily Mail reported.Dubbed 'Nonlethal Warhead for Miniature Organic Precision Munitions', there isn't even a prototype yet - but it's on the U.S Army's wish list.It's been demanded through the U.S Government's 'Small Business Innovation Research' program, which persuades companies to research and build products in return for a potential commercial deal.For the floating bullet, the Army confessed that 'this effort will require innovative research and advancements in non-lethal technologies which can be packaged within a very small volume and weight' and suggests that designers should consider 'mechanical, such as rubber balls; acoustic; chemical; electrical; or dazzle'.The idea certainly isn't pie in the sky, as the U.S Army already has a 'kamikaze' robotic drone called Switchblade, which quietly hovers before dive-bombing and blowing up a target.
