New speech-jamming gun hints at dystopian Big Brother future.
Right, well, we'll see what happens to the first government SOBs to try this out on an American crowd. Now there's a quandary. Shoot the technology? Shoot the operator? Both? Decisions, decisions.
Shoot both! It is only personal/personnel cost to the oppressors that will cause the desired recognition of our sincerity.
I don't see where the bulletproof shield attaches...
There's a vulnerability there. Note the microphone is right next to the speaker. If the speaker volume is too high, the mike picks up the speaker output, amplifies it, and sends it back out the speaker. Positive feedback. The thing will go into oscillation (screeching). A counter would be to exploit that weakness by sending the device's own signal back to it.
What's the street price on these? I once knew a female with a bad case of logorrhea...
One straight-on shot should be good for both device and user.
Save Ammo! Line 'Em Up First!
I imagine they are easily defeated with cheap disposable earplugs or the more upscale noise canceling earbuds.
How about a parabolic reflector/amplifier to bounce it right back at them?
Jut before you shoot 'em.
Consult Comrade Molotov. One stone, two birds, well done.
Best guess: nobody does anything beyond some angry letters to the editor after the fact.
I wish it would be otherwise, but given all the non-lines-in-the-sand to date, I don't really see that one being the trigger for anything.
"cheap disposable earplugs"
And that's the point. The issue is free speech and the ability to suppress it, so that the message cannot be heard and therefore cannot spread. So that protests become useless and are eliminated as a means of social expression and interaction.
Time to learn sign languge just in case?
Earplugs...the preferred size being 0.3 inches in diameter, with a weight of approximately 168 grains. Other sizes may do the job just as effectively...YMMV.
