New speech-jamming gun hints at dystopian Big Brother future

Extreme Tech | March 1, 2012

By Sebastian Anthony

Japanese researchers have created a hand-held gun (pictured above) that can jam the words of speakers who are more than 30 meters (100ft) away. The gun has two purposes, according to the researchers: At its most basic, this gun could be used in libraries and other quiet spaces to stop people from speaking — but its second application is a lot more chilling.

The researchers were looking for a way to stop “louder, stronger” voices from saying more than their fair share in conversation.

  1. This is the “future” that humanity has planned for itself! The Lord God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are not invited!

  2. Let me lay it out for you in plain terms. They want you to be under the control of a global artificial intelligence brain acting in a godlike capacity. Might this be the “desolating sacrilege” spoken of by the prophets of the Lord God? There is no doubt in my mind!

    Neurotechnologies as weapons in national intelligence and defense – An overview

    Synesis: A Journal of Science, Technology, Ethics, and Policy 2011; 2:T55-71

    Advances in neuroscience and neurotechnology have necessitated discussions on the ways that such developments could be used as weapons in contexts of national security, intelligence, and defense. This paper defines the concept of neuroweapons, and elucidates operational issues associated with their use to aid informational and strategic intelligence, such as brain-machine interfaces to improve efficiency in data analysis. As well, exploration of neuropharmacologic, neuromicrobiological, and neurotoxic agents are discussed relevant to their utility in combat scenarios. The limitations of emerging neurotechnologies as weapons are addressed, as both regards practical and operational frameworks, and implications relevant to formulation of ethico-legal guidelines and governance of research, development and potential use.

    Key words: neuroscience, neurotechnology, neuroweapons, neurosecurity, national defense, biotechnology, weaponry.
