A book set in 2025 featuring futuristic technology is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. Dragon Empire, written by physicist Dr. Adam Weigold, aims to raise money for an emerging photonic technology called Laser Powered EMP (LEMP), which is currently being developed Weigold and his research team at Lightning Gun.

LEMP technology is a new type of photonic weapon, which isn’t lethal to humans but is deadly to the advanced electronics found in guided missiles and aerial drones. The book explores photonic warfare and other futuristic technologies, including LEMP, and could also help build a real-life laser weapon.

Extra profits from the book, as well as any leftover Kickstarter funds, could be used for a basic laser research lab in the Silicon Valley/Bay Area and employing research and engineering staff.

Wired notes that Weigold holds a doctorate in atomic and laser physics from Macquarie University. His epic adventure novel feature technologies that are already being developed in both the U.S. and China. Dragon Empire is available for a pledge of $10 for the e-book or $29 for the paperback.
