And you thought those noisy neighbors were annoying. The Thunder Generator turns mere racket into deadly waves. It uses liquid petroleum to create explosions that generate such noisy shockwaves that they can stun people a football field away, and kill them if they're within 30 feet.
Originally used to scare birds away, this amped-up version has military implications — you can lash a few of them together to create a fearsome parimeter, scaring off all comers. You can even curve the barrel to make the sound go around 90-degree angles. Is that even possible?
Scary stuff, indeed. Let's just hope the cops don't start using this as just another one of their "harmless" nonlethal weapons, such as the Taser.
