Sonic Nausea: They Won’t Know What Hit ‘Em

by


This little device is actually quite dangerous in the wrong hands. It’s powerful enough to induce headaches, dizziness, irritation and even vomiting to everyone in its vicinity. That being said, it’s an extremely nerdy way to get back at bullies.

The Sonic Nausea is based on the speaker-sized Super Sonic Nausea (the hierarchy is evident), which can cause discomfort to large crowds. Both emit high frequency sounds to get things done, which means it’ll be hard for your targets to realize they’re actually being attacked (as if anyone would be paranoid enough to suspect that they’re being attacked by a high-frequency device every time they feel dizzy).

You can order the Sonic Nausea from Shomer-Tec for $29 (USD). I don’t know how fast this works or how large it’s area of effect is, but it goes without saying that this thing doesn’t pick targets. Let’s hope it comes with an adequate manual.

    best comment ever.

    Seems that it’ll effect the user as well, without proper precautions.

    they should make something like this for a car alarm

    Actually I think this only affects younger people as older peoples hearing loss do not detect it.

      Actually…

      I believe it works because it is the resonant frequency of something, NOT because you can hear it. Therefore, it doesn’t matter whether you can hear it or not, as you’re feeling it, not hearing it.

    Probably works by affecting the inner ear. My mom had inner ear problems frequently, and the symptoms were quite similar.

    If I’m not mistaken this is a smaller version of the crowd control devices the military are using. (the pics I’ve seen look like search lights with no lenses) So, possibly mounting this in the center of a parabolic surface would make it directional. Though indoors, the sound reflections off the walls would also effect the user.

    Probably best used as a deterrent when you’re not in the immediate vicinity. Say someone breaks into your house, you retreat into your safe room and activate the device. The burglar flees the area. Probably not to mess with you again.

    But, you’d better check your local laws before you use it. In some places even a non-lethal booby-trap will get you thrown in jail and sued.

      The “Sonic Nausea” device works effectively up to 20 feet under ideal conditions, especially on people in the age group 18-35. It causes a very noticeable high pitched sound (more potent than a mosquito whining sound)which works deep inside the ear canal with residual ringing in the ears up to 20 minutes later. It caused disruption to concentration in some, heightened aggression in one individual and downright irritation to many younger people but no obvious effect on children or older adults?…as yet. No nausea? It can be used as a self-defence device only if the would be attacker is distracted (more likey this will happen)long enough for you to make a break for it. Too bad if your mugger is deaf as a post…or an old lady. Sonic Nausea’s capabilities are overstated, it’s just an irritant in my view, great for petty…and I mean petty…”revenge”.
