silence gun

A speech jammer to use on people who won’t shut up:

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.

I can forsee an application in the gun community… You tell your wife or girlfriend that you’re buying X many guns for $Y and she starts freaking out and you just aim this thing and, hit the button and problem solved. :P Temporairly anyway… haha  Wait until she figures out how to use it and drops a few thousand on purses and shoes.

Gotta love engineering!
