You may know that they have developed weapons using sound, and these are already shipping to military and police customers.
While this non-lethal approach to crowd control is appreciated I can’t help but think of the abuses this could lead to.
A sonic cannon can shoot targeted sound blasts capable of causing pain and severe mental discomfort hundreds of feet away.
While the first models of these cannons are mounted up on a large stalk and have a clear visual shape, I believe miniaturization and stealth tech will reduce these down to something more portable and concealable, and that’s why I really worry about these devices.
DJ’s have been manipulating people through sound for over 40 years, but their goal is to get listeners to let loose and shake their ass.
These sonic cannons will let your bowels loose and you’ll poop your pants. They only play brown notes!
Now that the industrial-scientific use has been found for them, I expect us to hear (rimshot) more about these sonic assault rifles soon enough.
