Actually you do, they are called microwave ovens. This is a non-lethal device, that causes pain by warming the water in your skin.

Durring a 700 million dollar study sceintists have noted that throwing water on some people or making scary noises tends to frighten them and cause them to run away. This scientific breakthrough will be adopted by the U.S. forces and utilized on the modern battlefield to force enemey troops from their fighting positions. This is said to be revolutionary and will eliminate the need for weapons that might actualy harm people, animals or the environment. [bounce]

The effects described do indicte a long-focus magnetron. Same principle as radar propagation or your microwave oven's active element. Not necessarily lethal but, if memory serves, able to distort chromosomes and cause very bad subcutaneous burns.

Hmmm...what would happen if I used a big mirror to bounce it back, or could I just open an umbrella made of tin foil to repel it. makes you wonder.

I think there is a website that sells a book that tells you how to build a similar device. It's called "Po' man's ray gun", I think. It uses microwave parts to set fire to plywood at 500 feet, or so it claims. Interesting "silent weapon" indeed! Definite fun factor, if the radiation can be controlled [;)] [frag]
