This delayed auditory feedback device makes it all but impossible for a human to speak

Ever since humans first invented guns, they've been inventing new uses for them. Some shoot bullets; others shoot lasers. But a strange and unsettling new gun being developed by Japanese researchers shoots sound waves in an effort to disrupt and silence anyone who dares speak out of turn.

The gun operates based on the concept of delayed auditory feedback. An attached microphone picks up the sound being made by the target and plays it back 0.2 seconds later. The effect is incredibly confusing to the human brain, making it all but impossible to talk or hold a conversation. The device doesn't cause the person it's being used on any physical harm — it simply messes with their head.

This seems to be borrowing from the feedback you get on the phone when calling long distance or abroad.

It is almost as bad as the breathing sound, clicking noises, clinking sound of a stirred cups of coffee I get on my phone when calling my associates and friends

I don't know if you are old enough to remember this guy on TV but I imagine the effects could be something similar. This is an interview rather than just his skit and he explains how he came upon the idea, quite by chance.
He did this act for many a year, decades.

Yup. I saw him on tv in the 1990s and thought him to be irritating.

What shocks me the most is that his face hasn't changed over the last 20 years but his hair has. This guy must have been born old.
