Japanese researchers invented a speech-jamming machine to painlessly make people stop talking. Kazutaka Kurihara of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, and Koji Tsukada of Ochanomizu University developed this bad boy that can silence people up to 30 meters or more away.
Here’s how it works: The speech jammer records the target’s speech, then sends the words back at the target with a 0.2 second delay. This affects the brain’s cognitive processes, causing the target to stutter before silencing them altogether.
The speech jammer is suggested to be used in libraries or wherever important group discussions may be held, but of course there are always the negatives to using the machine. The speech jammer sort of gets in the way of one’s freedom of speech in some cases; however, a movie theater is a perfect place to put this invention. Nobody wants to hear what some random person thinks is going to happen next or some teenager’s immature remarks on a particular scene, so there should be a speech jammer sniper in every theater.
