Japan invents speech-jamming gun that silences people mid-sentence


Upload to Disclose.tv




TOKYO (Newscore) - Japanese researchers have invented a speech-jamming gadget that painlessly forces people into silence.

Kazutaka Kurihara of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, and Koji Tsukada of Ochanomizu University, developed a portable "SpeechJammer" gun that can silence people more than 30 meters away.

The device works by recording its target's speech then firing their words back at them with a 0.2-second delay, which affects the brain's cognitive processes and causes speakers to stutter before silencing them completely.

Describing the device in their research paper, Kurihara and Tsukada wrote, "In general, human speech is jammed by giving back to the speakers their own utterances at a delay of a few hundred milliseconds. This effect can disturb people without any physical discomfort, and disappears immediately by stopping speaking."

They found that the device works better on people who were reading aloud than engaged in "spontaneous speech" and it cannot stop people making meaningless sounds, such as "ahhh," that are uttered over a long time period.

Kurihara and Tsukada suggested the speech-jamming gun could be used to hush noisy speakers in public libraries or to silence people in group discussions who interrupt other people's speeches.

"There are still many cases in which the negative aspects of speech become a barrier to the peaceful resolution of conflicts," the authors said.

How could this device possibly have any legitimate use?

I bet you in Afghanistan they can use it legally on their wives.
If I am not mistaken the freedom the west has brought to Afghanistan, permits a man to not feed his wife if she does not have sex with him.
I am sure there is scope to to use it there

There are millions of people in Japan. Not everyone works for a nuclear power plant in that country.

People have different jobs there. :bang;

Stupid cock suckers and their stupid titles.

I hope the people who made these videos with these titles have a seizure like that while they're are driving. Crash and become a quadriplegic.
