    Linky? I've never heard of a torch or laser that can imitate a human voice. I thought they were part of the light spectrum, not audio?
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    I assume that the "light" was modulated, so yes, it appears to be possible that the report is legitimate.

    Geez the word "Hacked" is so loosely used these days

    If u want to go on an expedition get a Land Rover, if u want to come home from an expedition get a Landcruiser!

    thats about as good as the day I picked up the cat by the tail and pointed its ring-piece at my computer monitor and the computer went to sleep when i squeezed the cat . I think the cat had a hidden laser stuck up there and when i squeezed it moved its appendix and triggered the laser on ????

    Is it April 1st already?

    Yes, you can certainly modulate light, it's how fibre optic communications work, but... it has to be converted back... demodulated, to convert it to audio.

    Torchlight on a microphone?

    Gee, how come all those smartphones at music concerts haven't been 'set off' by the lasers and other lighting.... or even sunlight.

    I too am calling BS.

    The researchers must know something you don't doubt it's fake news. I don't have to prove anything just making people aware of THE NEWS

    Size Matters !!

    I have a 5W laser, that etches nicely copper tracks.
    I am certain I can HACK with it a Google home so that it will never spy on you again

    You can indeed physically move/modulate matter with the photons of a powerful Laser but more in a molecular level and focused, not 100m away unless insanely powerful.


    They do mention a powerful laser in the Wired link but even my little 5 watter would have started melting the plastic away with a lot of smoke in the time that video was showing the laser static on the device.

    Just to give you an idea here it is mounted on my 3D printer, smoking nicely away and the object(wood) is constantly moving:



    No time for hidden voices here.
    This era of thoughtless consumption must end so we can encourage a world of creative geniuses rather than consumer idiots.
