    Is it banned in New York yet?

    It makes me wonder a)what that would do to a person, and b) would a man-portable version make an effective less-than-lethal weapon (say, as a substitute for beanbag rounds or rubber bullets)?

    Based on that video, I could see a vehicle mounted version being used for riot control – assuming it doesn’t cause pressure wave injuries.

    Very cool video!

    The Germans were working on vortex cannons as an anti-aircraft weapon during WWII. One inch thick plywood at 200 meters wasn’t a problem. Planes at 20,000 feet didn’t notice.

    A marine version might make a decent anti-piracy weapon for ships, UNLESS it was ruled a firearm. So far, the focused-sound weapons have passed muster, and this is non-electronic, except for valving and firing, so it would make a better marine weapon.
