Je sais pas si c’est toi Tranx qui m’a fait connaitre ca – ca ne m’etonnerai absolument pas – but just in case you haven’t, je voudrais partager avec vous un groupe nippon assez barré: Kiiiiiii (y’en a 7)

super sonic nausea deviceWhat you see on the left is called a Super Sonic Nausea Device. Although its name may seem graphical enough, I’ll leave you to a portion of the product’s description:

« Super Sonic Nausea is a unique high-pressure acoustical generating device which provides a substantial capability to disrupt and disperse gatherings. Speeches, demonstrations, crowd dynamics, etc. – this device has been used to « influence » more of these than you might expect. Deployed near the podium, you might just have a case of an increasingly un-impressive speaker with diminished sharpness and lacking concentration, or perhaps is even unable to complete his presentation. Or, loitering youths on your property might be enticed to move along with no confrontations necessary. »

So no sign of inducing real throat-wrenching vomiting of any kind, but you can go ahead and annoy people with it.
The Super Sonic Nausea is « the rarely-available government model that the popular commercial product Sonic Nausea was based on. »
Now the Sonic Nausea device on the other hand (seen on the right) truly deserves its name.sonic nausea

« Sonic Nausea is a small electronic device which can really turn one’s stomach. It generates a unique combination of ultra-high frequency soundwaves which soon leads most in its vicinity to queasiness. It can also cause headaches, intense irritation, sweating, imbalance, nausea, or even vomiting. Hiding this device in your inconsiderate neighbor’s house might put an end to their late-night parties. The abusive bureaucrat’s office, the executive lunchroom… the possibilities are endless for that small portion of inventive payback ».

Now you’re probably asking yourself where I found all this info. BoingBoing for one put me on the track (un-surprisingly), and the rest of it I found in a law enforcement and military equipment online retailer called Shomer TEC.

The Super Sonic Nausea can be purchased for $99, and the Sonic Nausea is sold for $29. Both products can be found in the « Cool Stuff » tab, under the « Revenge Product » category.
