Future Riot Shields Will Suffocate Protestors with Low Frequency Speakers

Future Riot Shields Will Suffocate Protestors with Low Frequency SpeakersIt's not the first crowd control tool to use sound waves, but Raytheon's patent for a new type of riot shield that produces low frequency sound waves to disrupt the respiratory tract and hinder breathing, sounds a little scary.

Crowd control tools like the LRAD Sound Cannon emit bursts of loud and annoying sounds that can induce headaches and nausea. But Raytheon's non-lethal pressure shield creates a pulsed pressure wave that resonates the upper respiratory tract of a human, hindering breathing and eventually incapacitating the target. The patent points out that the sound waves being generated are actually not that powerful, so while protestors might collapse from a lack of oxygen reaching their brains, their eardrums won't be damaged in the process. Phew!

And like Roman soldiers joining their shields to form a large impenetrable wall, these new riot shields can actually be networked together to form a larger acoustical horn, vastly improving their range, power, and effectiveness. There's no word on what the long-term medical implications might be if you find yourself on the wrong side of one of these shields. But I imagine the unpleasant experience is not unlike being force choked from afar by Darth Vader. [Google Patents via New Scientist]

Oh, I've heard about these. They were first used in the military as riot control, but I've specifically heard about the one you have to be standing in front of to be blasted with this earsplitting sound that forces anyone away from the area. It's supposed to be pretty painful.

EDIT: but I didn't hear about the nausea involved. Hopefully someone will use it as an art installment for one of their Coachella acts and then the back of the audience can get crushed instead of the front. Oh, and vomited on. Not really, that was kind of horrible

it resonates your respiratory system.. in other words it will vibrate your lungs until you cant breathe.. it has nothing to do with what your ears are hearing

More creepy than the low frequency gun that makes your bowels loose and you just shit everywhere?
