&gt;&gt; Hey, once Tesla talked about using a strong UV light (nowadays you&#39;d<br>
&gt;&gt; use a laser) to ionize the air and use it as an electrical conductor<br>
&gt;&gt; to the target.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Forgot to add; does anyone know whether anyone actually did this, or<br>
&gt; where the idea went?  Might be useful in zapping vehicles or people<br>
&gt; from a distance (i.e. a tazer without the painful barbs).<br>

&gt; I wonder if you could do something similar to refract E/M waves for a<br>
&gt; specific purpose.<br>
