Shockrounds take out three of your five senses.



I suppose that leaves enough of your sentient being to wet yourself when hit when one of these babies. Other than that, I suspect you won't be able to life yourself out of your own puddle for some time.



I guess the Shockround is kind of like lighting a cherry bomb inside your mouth, or, at least very close to your face. Except it has a range of about three hundred feet.



Talk about seeing stars when you get hit.



Still, it's less potent than getting hit with a .50 caliber. Which is why they call it a less-lethal round of ammo.





www.wired.com...







SmartRounds Technology (SRT) is developing a round which carries liquefied compressed gas and then activates a high-powered “shock wave” which, upon impact, rapidly expands and “attacks three of the five human senses.”



Generally, one unit volume of the liquefied compressed gas will expand to around 800 unit volumes at standard temperature and pressure, meaning that a relatively large amount of gas (like a chemical irritant) can be carried in quite a small package.

The ShockRounds are designed to be fired from SRT-approved rifle launchers modeled on the Colt M4 carbine while the pistol launcher is modeled after an unnamed “popular semi-automatic handgun.”



SRT says that the choice of the payload carried on the projectile is what determines the stopping power of the particular round and there are many options in terms of payloads.

Doesn't really say what the three senses are, I would presume that sight and hearing would be two of them. What would the third be?

I wondered that, too. I'm guessing sence of touch. I imagine it would leave you pretty numb.

This sounds like a great crowd control device. Look for it in you local police arsenal soon.

Other than being unable to control one's bowel movements, the sense of feel, or touch would be greatly diminished.

It's a taser with a lot more range.

I suppose you could say that a person hit with this round couldn't taste anything. So, that makes it four out of five senses obliterated.

That leaves the sense of smell. What a cruel irony. The only sense you are left with. You can smell yourself wetting and crapping your pants.

Don't ask what it would do to the sixth sense. That is merely speculation. Like a near death experience?

Sounds like having a lot more fun with your enemy beyond the old fashioned method of just simply shooting them with a lead projectile......or silver for werewolves.



Nonlethal Weapons Could Target Brain, Mimic Schizophrenia
www.wired.com...

Among those discussed are weapons that could disrupt the brain, as well as my longtime obsession, the "Voice of God" device, which creates voices in people’s heads. As the report notes, "Application of the microwave hearing technology could facilitate a private message transmission. It may be useful to provide a disruptive condition to a person not aware of the technology. Not only might it be disruptive to the sense of hearing, it could be psychologically devastating if one suddenly heard ‘voices within one’s head.’"

better start investing in 3-d printers

and start building your own swarm of semi autonomous personal drones

programmed to start firing the instant it sees one of these "non lethal" weapons

or if fast enough, to intercept and detonate it

while it's still within 300 ft of the douches that would use these

hoist them with there own petard

maybe with the right timing a simple home-made concussion grenade would have the same effect
stop fearing these things, start thinking, and start educating yourselves
so you can fight fire with fire

is anybody still doubting the police and the military won't turn on the people if ordered to ?

As I've already said, when the Depopulation Wars come, someone had to do the dirty work.

Whether it's the police, the military, the growing numbers of private security-mercenary forces.....Yep, someone is going to be firing the fireballs at someone.

indeed
though i always advocate never attacking entrenched powers head on
nor do i advocate violent revolution
that's what TCOTBIP want

how ever i do advocate violence against those who use violence
self defense is a natural right after all

i'm more a starve the beast/ death by a thousand cuts person [see my profile wall for resources and such]


taken from an interesting thread that could use a few posts www.abovetopsecret.com...

It's called the philosophy of Judo...the Way.

Judo evolved into Ju Jitsu and Kung Fu and Chuck Norris.

and dont forget that the real purpose of these non-lethal weapons
are to terrorize onlookers

When the State is intent upon controlling its population, when the State wants to end certain kinds of behavior, it doesn't need to punish everyone who engages in the disapproved behavior. It need only choose a few particularly visible and popular targets, which is precisely what it did when it chose Megaupload. Fear will do the rest.

That's not unlike walking into a bad bar in a bad neighborhood, before you start drinking, pick out the biggest guy there, then stomp him with a tire iron like a cockroach. Do it for no other reason than you want to establish the reputation of being insane as John Wesley Hardin or Billy the Kid.

That way you can drink in relative confidence that no one will want to pick a fight with you. You have proven yourself to be crazy. And nobody wants to fight a crazy man.

Yes, simple lessons in the power of persuasion go a long, long way in influencing group behavior.

Now, for no particular reason other than I want to show another example of chemical agents used as non-lethal weapons.

What about vinegar as a non-lethal, chemical agent weapon.

Or, what about vinegar for starting an earthquake?

We're accustomed to talking about HAARP creating earthquakes.

Hannibal used vinegar to break up rocks when crossing the Alps into Italy, in his plan to sack Rome.

Heating and quenching the rock would cause it to become brittle , like accelerating the Freeze Thaw process, making them easier to break. For this any Liquid would have done, but Wine goes to Vinegar easily when it travels, ancient Armies often carried alot of it so you may as well use the Waste. Hannibal's engineers used this wine turned to vinegar to help widen existing Fissures in the rocks, caused By jointing and Weathering.

With enough vinegar, you can create an earthquake.

Cleopatra demonstrated its solvent property by dissolving precious pearls in it to win a wager that she could consume a fortune in a single meal.

Ostensibly, vinegar can be used to blunt at least one of the five senses. A non-lethal vinegar bullet to the face could do the trick of blinding an target.

or do what some of the hippies used to do:

DMSO-4+'___' in a water-pistol

of course the police will shoot you dead if you point a water pistol at them
they've shot kids for pointing toy guns that no one
in their right mind would confuse with the real thing
don't forget snipers either, that's a case where a drone system would be highly useful **

so a different delivery system for the above mentioned mixture is required just don't get any on your clothes or skin or you'll be tripping too


something along Sasori of the Red Sands
portable Flame-Thrower/Water Cannon* would be nice
the Water Cannon can serve dual purposes*
* a high pressure stream of water can cut through metal as in microwave dishes, cannons, tanks, etc ; there are table-top versions in existence.

if a picture equals a 1000 words, a video equals a million
flame-thrower from the start
Water Cannon at 3:37


**Air Force Bugbots
Micro Air Vehicle (MAVs) buglike drones: towards the end of the video watch a bug-bot take out a sniper

serious ninja skills can come in handy too
out of survival necessity[sociopathic daddy] i actually stumbled upon the technique of ninja invisibility at age 7, mastered it at 8, and even today i can walk right past people with out being noticed, sometimes even by accident

Those bugbots remind me of the World War Two plan to use bats as incendiary devices over Japanese cities.

You know, when you use animals as weapons.....whether biological or android.....the unexpected can happen.

Take for instance the incident where some Confederate soldiers tried to use mules as IEDs. Happened in the New Mexico terrirtories around 1963. The Confederates loaded the mules up with fused bombs, then road the mules into the Union encampment.

The problem? Well, when the Confederates turned their horses around to head out and away as the fuses burned down.....the faithful mules followed them. The faster the rode away, the faster the mules followed them.

Anyway, a lot tech device for crowd dispersal....yeah, I guess it can be considered non-lethal. Depending on what kind of ball you are using. Steel or rubber.

Some Roman dude who lived in the Holy Lands way back when developed a bellow's type device to spray an irritant into the faces of charging calvary horses.

The irritant was made from a plant whose name I can't remember at the moment.

The horse would go wild. Throw the rider to the ground. The rider being weighted down with armor then became easy prey.,

The irritant was basically non-lethal to the horse, but very lethal to the rider.

The Japanese schoolgirl assassin Gogo Yubari mentioned in the comments
and yeah that guy could have taught her
combines hammer and whip

also more on topic lol as while it's good to see a demonstration of kata, one does want to see it in actual use




the irritant thing sounds familiar though it's archimedes that comes to mind
he designed and had built solar reflectors to defend syracuse from the roman navy

and of course:



The most dangerous weapon on Earth,
only fires neurons



it's been real but looks like the threads been buried under.
timing is everything and never post on a sunday if you don't have to

Get close enough to use this weapon on an Iranian suicide boat driver, then watch said driver careen into an Iranian desrtoryer and sink their beloved ship.

Now, that would be hilarious.
