’m not a big advocate for weapon design in general, BUT this design aims to provide a non-lethal solution for defending your home when the security system and locks have failed. The weapon pulses and invisible laser that super-heats the surrounding air. The resulting plasma explosion delivers a swift kick to the intruder while electro magnetic waves induce temporary paralysis. OUCH!
I'm not a massive fan of guns either, purely because people kill people with guns. There are moments where guns are absent mindly left out in the open and kids kill each other with them and so forth. In this case, at least there's very little chance for anyone to die. On the other hand, it sounds more like this gun could vaporize rather then kick back and stun.
