Whats in the Box?

Instructions on how to open a box? Even in todays world of litigation gone mad, never should have this been made...thinking on why some one made this or need it is making my brain hurt.

Too simple

A bunch of little off the shelf tech lasers seems the way to go, but surely the boffins thought of that right... all you have to do is have the heat input greater than than what the object can dissipate to start to heat it, my thinking is a group would work better at this than say a single laser. Must be some reason why it cant work cause it seems to simple a answer

Given it may be slow but it just works down to a numbers game. If one Laser System can save X amount of soldiers in a given amount of time they will be saving a large amount of money in the long run, no death payouts, no injury compensation and not to mention not losing a well trained grunt that probably cost hundreds of thousands to train up from high school. We all know that the numbers of things that haven't happened, such as the death of soldiers, can be fudged "This Laser has saved 100 lives this week", so if this gets of the drawing board it will always look good on paper. True if the baddies have any idea what the system is all it will take is a good distracting barrage and a well placed RPG at the system at the same time...
