On a dark Friday, a new weapon

To finish a pants-shitting week, lets go to the weekend in crisply pressed strides, only with nasty skid marks:

China has developed the world’s first portable sonic gun for riot control, the Chinese Academy of Sciences said.

The rifle-shaped instrument, which was jointly developed with military and law enforcement, is designed to disperse crowds using focused waves of low frequency sound, the academy’s Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry website said on Wednesday.

The device’s “biological effect” would cause extreme discomfort, with vibrations in the eardrums, eyeballs, stomach, liver, and brain, scientists said.

Studies dating to the 1940s found that low frequency sound energy could, depending upon intensity and exposure, cause dizziness, headaches, vomiting, bowel spasms, involuntary defecation, organ damage and heart attacks.

Sonic weapons are typically large and have to be mounted on vehicles. Until the Chinese development, which has no moving parts, they were powered by electricity to drive a magnetic coil to generate energy. This meant they needed a large and stable source of power.

I wonder if an Aussie university contributed to the intellectual property?

Australia in the brown.

Comments

  1. Developed and Chine don’t seem to go together …. who did they steal the blueprint from and who have they been testing it on

  2. Scomo is already using one of these, to disperse crowds using focused waves of “Liu” frequency sound

  3. Something to look forward to in a few years time when the Aussie government privatises our police forces to a Chinese company.

  4. I guess “riot” to the CCP is any sort of march/protest not endorsed by the CCP?

    Those rowdy “rioters” – bring in the sonic guns!

    “Riot” now, ya mugs!

    More control and thuggery, brought to you by the CCP.

    Do you think Dutton will get some ideas? Remember that those protesting kids are national security threats, too, right? Sonic guns will teach them to stay in school instead of protesting their demise, right?

    Those weapons sound farkn awesome. I hope many an anti-profits rally is destroyed by them. Good on the Chinamen for being leaders instead of weak sjws.

    • And for the eventualdeath of the old bloke they have lots of issues with whose death will cause mass demonstrations of public grief

  6. Seems some are blinkered to the Anti Christ Obama socialist commie conducting a 14 city paramilitary Pinkerton crack down on pro democratic protesters over the largess afforded Capital post GFC – largest wealth transfer upwards in modernity. A bankster even got cuff links, all that stands between them and you is me stuff … seems like he did well in the end … eh … new digs on the beach …

    Remember the ex Ranger that died in Oakland for just standing in front of the paramilitary forces on his way home from work – reminiscent of something else on would think.

    Anywho … what is worse the brown note or microwaved ….

  7. Just to put it into perspective … how many here would choose China over say Singapore … or the other way around and why …

    And yes I have a round loaded for the intellectually impaired.

    • He’s some sort of super-villain along the lines of Dr. Claw from Inspector Gadget. A completely useless joke yet impossible to catch and put behind bars.

  8. The inventor will get a Noble Prize when China has military bases near Sweden and Norway to help them focus on deserving nominees for future Prize awards.

  9. Lmmao …. then some would be curious why the IPA was once such a force about here, followed by gold bugs, then anti Occupy, until the moment some thought was impossible, they were the next in line to be given the treatment, after decades of supporting it on others without their will …. fitting imo …

    Oh where or where is the left …. maybe taken around the property shed and bludgeon to death … silly me they joined the party and used the market to forward libertarian social mores because monetizing reality forces the market to respond to income streams … slaps leg ….

    FFS … what happened to over sexed, over payed, and over here … culture is fickle it seems …

      • Oh you monetized yourself and that automatically grants gravitas, silly me, then you’ll wank on about RE prices, health and educational standards, your lot not having enough kids, and those that gaming everything to put their snow flakes in the right settings for success …. like a Scott’s box Hotel California …
