Old Tech...takes too long to set up and uses too much power. Pepper gas is cheaper and more fun.

Thanks I wanted to say that, these technology's have been around for 40+ years.

But now they got micro-waves that come up fast but do use enormous power. There are also lasers that can direct specific energy to burn the skin.

So called 'non lethal weapons' ( google that ) and you'll see that US-MIL has ton's of stuff. Every year "Janes" publishes a book on the weapons of the year, and they have a chapter just on such technology.

Many such 'heat rays', sound-waves, low/high frequency vhf/ufg, x-ray, laser, ...

Invisible weapons are preferred over 'chemical spraying' as its bad press for the US-MIL with the advent of so many mobile-phone-cameras now. So now as never before is the need for invisible technology to disperse crowds.

Probably the most important thing a protester can do is protect his/her eyes, and ears. Most of this technology is made to cause temporary loss of vision and/or sight.

For instance about 10+ years ago the US-MIL came out of a small laser device that could blind everyone within 100 meters that wasn't wearing sun-glasses and that technology is still used, so if you go to public protest, always wear some kind of glass to protect your eyes, as these lasers can cause delayed permanent blindness, as you know cops, soldiers, and secret-service, ... et-al are ALWAYS wearing such glasses to protect their eyes, knowing that at any time everyone else can be blinded.

Such devices to blind people such as multi-directional lasers are quite small and use low power.

Devices that can cause ear damage are usually via bad music, but also delayed sounds waves from a source that are re-directed on a delayed basis can make a speakers voice NULL and drive that person crazy, ... all this technology is used now on US soil by the US military.
