"I remember reading in the "Fortean Times" about a weapon called "Brown Noise". Essentially a directional loudspeaker capable of such loud subsonic frequencies that the recipient "soiled himself". Wonder what came of that? Sure to make protesters waddle rapidly home from any riot"

They never actually managed to find the "brown noise", it was a theory rather than a reality...also this post has been shown before, i think.

It probably went down the drain :)

Oh great, more things that the military can use to oppress us in the coming police state! Goody!

The invisible electric fence-thing, shouldn`t you be albe to get through it anyway? I mean, if you threw yourself at it (or were thrown at it for that matter) you`d get the same heluva shock as if you tried to unsuspectingly walk through it, but you`d still get through it?

And here I was thinking I would be reading about silly things that only look like weapons, but won`t do anything. Nope. Instead, I read about devices that make you wish you were dead. Pleasant.

That sounds like the product of a bad science fiction movie with moraly very, very doubtful applications...

I don`t think these are in line with what people meant with `non-lethal`. Some of these are basically ballistic torture devices.

When I think non-lethal weapons I`d think more about some kind of net or one of those rubber ball rifles, even though they too hurt pretty bad.

Long story short the goal should be to disable, not to maim/cripple/chemically castrate.

Hehe, I like that Doom II (or I think it`s probably Doom I.) screen shot for the first one. Although that weapon on Doom was pretty bad ass.

Waterboarding is an action, not a weapon....

If a pitcher of water and some plastic wrap sparks fear in your heart and you`re not a (perceived) criminal, something`s wrong...

The Active Denial System is by far the win. Eat pain ray pirate scum. Look for those who have not seen Black Hawk Down rent it. This tech could have saved a lot of lives on both sides if it was battle ready.

Just because they`re illegal doesn`t mean that the army or the government will not use them. People need to stand up against this kind of thing, or before much longer our lives will be sci-fi nightmares.
