Great thread OP!
Regardless of what anyone may think about D4rk Kn1ght's warnings (And, again, I am skeptically on the fence), this technology completely fits into his description of what he claims will happen. He has clearly stated people will see and HEAR things very specific to them.
I'm just saying is all...

How many babies has this harmed?
During the 1990s, a number of studies hinted that ultrasound scanning affected unborn babies. Research has suggested that subtle brain damage can cause people who ought genetically to be right-handed to become left-handed. In addition, these people face a higher risk of conditions ranging from learning difficulties to epilepsy.
Now a team of Swedish scientists has confirmed the earlier reports on the effects of ultrasound with the most compelling evidence yet that unborn babies are affected by the scanning. They compared almost 7,000 men whose mothers underwent scanning in the 1970s with 170,000 men whose mothers did not, looking for differences in the rates of left- and right-handedness. The team found that men whose mothers had scans were significantly more likely to be left-handed than normal, pointing to a higher rate of brain damage while in the womb. Crucially, the biggest difference was found among those born after 1975, when doctors introduced a second scan later in pregnancy. Such men were 32 per cent more likely to be left-handed than those in the control group.
Anything, absolutely anything can be abused and used to harm someone. That does not mean that the technology itself is harmful, evil, or dangerous.

The only worry I have about this technology is that it is easy to hide the source, and maybe also to alter the vector of the resulting sonic wavefront to confuse the target about the direction of the source (this last bit I am wildly guessing).

All those tin foil hats may come in handy after all.
Maybe I'll look into marketing them myself.
