Not sure how credible this source is but it seems to fit his prediction
Update: I realize now it was the 4chan post that mentions lasers. Still find this very interesting and concerning if it’s accurate.
Chinese military scientists have announced a major breakthrough in laser weapon technology, claiming they have developed a new cooling system that allows high-energy lasers to operate “infinitely” without any build-up of waste heat. According to scientists at the National University of Defence Technology, in Changsha, Hunan province, the new cooling system completely eliminates the harmful heat that is generated during the operation of high-energy lasers. The issue has been a major technical challenge for laser weapon development. With the new technology, weapons can now generate laser beams for as long as they want, without any interruption or degradation in performance.
