The U.S. Defense department has tested some spooky weapons, but those involving mind control and telepathic attack may be near the top of the list. A newly declassified 1998 document released under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act (download the pdf here), describes potential weapons for crowd control, such as a microwave gun that could beam words directly into people's ears, and an electromagnetic pulse that causes epilepsy-like seizures.
The report also discusses a weapon that can heat a victim's body internally, producing an artificial fever. It is unknown whether the fever-inducing technology was actually tested, but the report notes that the equipment needed "is available today" and that the resulting fever would keep a victim incapacitated for "any desired period consistent with safety."
In an interview with New Scientist, Steve Wright, a UK security expert at Leeds Metropolitan University, warned that such technologies could be used for torture. "The epileptic seizure-inducing device is grossly irresponsible and should never be fielded," He said. "We know from similar artificially-induced fits that the victim subsequently remains 'potentiated' and may spontaneously suffer epileptic fits again after the initial attack."
so, a microwave gun sends sound waves? I didn't think sound waves were microwaves......
To each his own,
It's whatever man!
Like in the futuristic Simpsons episode where Lisa becomes President and Bart is a driftin bum.
Bart Points the gun @ his head and his mind experiences TV bypassing his eyes.
He trigger surfs.
SIGH 1000 channels and still nothing on.
It could also be used for wireless eyeless Internet.
TV and internet for the blind.
Such weapons are entirely and frighteningly possible. The human nerve cells all contain within each one a matrix of microtubules in them from the neurotransmitter receptor sites. There are more than one hundred different neurotransmitters that determine the coding of the transmitted nerve impulse traveling from one nerve cell to the next in sequence. These codings are what tells the brain how to interpret the signal as pleasure or pain, pressure or something else and the microtubules carry the nuances of the codings. They are made of a single molecule that is chained together and laid down spirally to form the tiny tubules just like bucky tubes. This molecule has one single electron that moves from one nucleus to another and back again, just like a real molecular transistor switch. Any moving electron is susceptable to any radiated electromagnetic energy and in fact it is moving electrons that produce radiated electromagnetic energy. It is because of these structures that the technology displayed in the fictional movie "Brainstorm" staring the deceased actress Natilie Wood is entirely possible and may even have been the cause of the movie script, many such movies are based in the reality of ultra secret black budget operations of our own government and its scientists. You think it was a human civilization abberation what happened in World War II is and was commonplace, the experimenting on living human beings was going on in the United States and still is today but in more esoteric sciences like scalar so called "Tesla" waves. It is very possible to build something like the TV phasor of Star Trek to stun people by interfering directly with those microtubules in all our nerve cells, even being able to kill any living thing with a nervous system like ours. That is why I am concerned, just as the misuse of the nuclear rocket motor killed some people in Texas, this and other top secret projects have been and will continue to kill or destroy the lives of "test subjects" nothing has changed since WWII because people are still volenteering to be subjects of such dangerous experments, mainly federal prison inmates who are given no choice at all really. The real Germans of WWII did not invent what they did, they were the ones caught in the act of doing what they did. The truth is that our governments also perform such expirementation on people though with written signed and possibly coerced consent for the government peoples legal protection and for no other reason. The Germans NAZI party and people were merely doing what other governments, including our own, were and are still doing and this work will never be uncovered to see the light of day for obvious reasons of public outcry and outrage if the full facts were ever revealed to the worlds public in the news media.
The Army has the Microwave Audio Device already... it is used in both Iraq and Afghanistan and here in the states. Mostly it is used for communication.... and it does not alter your mind, it just sounds like you have head phones on when you hear what is being transmitted. This device is called the LRAD...short for Long Range Acoustic Device.
Used one myself while serving in Iraq to warn civilian population about potential IED's that we would come across while doing patrols. We would use it for riot control as well because it was effective and non-lethal. Pretty cool piece of equipment and a life saver.

robdur5233: While I respect your opinion. Please be mindful that most service members are bound by ethics and morals as defined in the Uniform Code of Military Justice. UCMJ punishment supersedes any punishment that can be levied by civilian law. Many have families and their only desire is to serve their country and make it back home to see the ones they love the most.
