Tomarrow on the History channel they will be airing a show about non-lethan weapons. Rotten fish and tazers were what the preview showed, and trust me rotten fish is enough to cause explosive vomiting!

check back for more tomarrow.

They stun, debilitate, and immobilize. But they don't kill--at least they're not supposed to. From sting ball grenades, to electrical shock devices, to heat-generating energy beams--these high-tech tools disperse angry crowds and take down criminals without hurting bystanders. From the caltrop--a multi-pointed, hand grenade-sized contraption that ancient foot soldiers hurled into the path of onrushing horsemen--to modern weapons of light and sound, we explore the arsenal of non-lethal weapons.

Sounds interesting.

I just wonder if they are going to show the hardening foam used by the Marine Corp.

I found this site regarding non-lethal weapons. It's pretty long but it really goes into detail.

The technologies publicly known to be under investigation fall into four broad military categories with two principle targets:

Super Lubricants: Ala James Bond, these can create a slick making it nearly impossible to walk much less operate a vehicle or land a plane.

Super Adhesives: Lend new meaning to the phrase "stick 'em up". Depending upon application (direct spray, bomb or artillery round), they can immobilize people, and turn military hardware into giant paperweights.

Anesthetics: Short term drugs administerable by injection (darts), inhalants (gas), and/or skin contact (sprays): consider it the humane way to bomb your adversary.

Acoustics: Low frequency, high decibel infrasound from high power acoustic generators can cause blurred vision, extreme nausea and even death. Additionally, it can be used to cause metal fatigue, thermal damage and delamination of composite materials. (Noriega only got loud music).

VSI: (Visual Stimulation and Illusion) includes an array of devices. One system utilizes banks of strobe lights flashing at the frequency of brain wave patterns. This can cause vertigo, nausea and disorientation. (The humane way to make your adversary see the light).
