New speech-jamming gun hints at dystopian Big Brother future


www.extremetech.com

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.

Suffice it to say, if you’re a firm believer in free speech, you should now be experiencing a deafening cacophony of alarm bells. Let me illustrate a few examples of how this speech-jamming gun could be used.

At a political rally,

This is absolutely appalling. I could just see the people at FOX and CNN using this to further manipulate debates, cops shutting down and causing mass confusion in protests .. I mean, who needs LRADs, right?

This could even be used in courtrooms like a nasty sort of gavel.

Speech jamming.. the very thought is repulsive!

What confuses me about this is how the thing actually works. Surely it would jam the speech of everyone in the room and make it completely obvious something was wrong. If all of a sudden one person was struggling with speech surely it would be suspicious..

I think alot of scientific data, proof and variable evidence is required before the speculation of this "speech jamming gun" can even begin being treated with realistic responses or commentary.

I'm surprised they didn't come up with this much earlier. This method was used to level down noise in factories. You hit the sound with its own "image" and the interference annuls itself.

computer software can simulate this very easily.

just your pc soundcard...a mike and a speaker..

just delay the output by about 0.2 seconds from the input audio.

i have done so easily using audacity.

Not another one of these threads...

This is the "offically sanctioned" thread for this topic:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

The mods will be closing it, by end of today is my bet.

Man, this is totally not true. I have been dealing with recording latency (due to sound card audio buffering) for over 15 years and it just throws you off of your thoughts. Just like a delay on a phone which happens all the time.

How are you going to delay the person's ear from hearing their own voice on time and that's what would be required, not a mic and a speaker. Gimme a break. All that will do is amplify them, with a delay.. so EVERYBODY will hear them. It's a voice amp weapon, instead of a silencer. HAHA...

Critical thinking folks.. it's not that difficult.

This is classic tyranny. 1984 is becoming more and more a reality.

Does this work with a headset. You speak an send your voice a few milliseconds later in your eardrums. Is there a special programm available?

Is it possible to use vlc? It has a time shift, but i havent found a way to record and play at the same time.

I heard about a "gun" that replays what you say back to you and somehow tricks your brain into stunning you and leaves you speechless.

This is an interesting idea, but I find it to be unnecessary.
