Watch out for the cops, because their flashlights might make you throw up! Intelligent Optical Systems has created the first flashlight that is so bright it can disorient bad guys and make them nauseatingly sick.
The flashlight is being developed for the Department of Homeland Security, and it uses a range finder to measure the distance to the targets eyes so that it can adjust the energy of light to a level that won’t cause permanent damage only make suspects feel sick and dizzy. It then rapidly shoots out pulses of light in an array of bright light emitting diodes (LEDs).
So, the flashes incapacitate a person in two different ways. First it temporarily blinds the person, as any bright light would, and then it pulses in different colours and durations. This affects people in different ways, ranging from disorientation to vertigo to nausea.
It’s not clear why this causes the affects that it does, however helicopter pilots have been known to crash because they become disorientated by the choppy flashes on sunlight coming through the helicopter’s spinning blades.
Of course, if you want to avoid throwing up all over the cops, all you need to do is close your eyes or get your hands on a pair of heavily tinted sunglasses. But then again, if you’re trying to avoid the cops with your eyes closed it may be a bit difficult.
Be aware, this device may look like a normal flashlight, but in mere seconds it will have anyone looking at it vomiting profusely!
