Inferno is a "sonic barrier," a long metallic speakerbar that generates a sound made of four frequencies between 2 and 5 kilohertz. The sound itself is 125dB, which is the typical sound made by an alarm, but according to Danger Room's Sharon Weinberger, it's "the most unbearable, gut-wrenching noise I've ever heard in my life." It was a very quick exposure but Sharon says that it was a lot worse than the Pentagon pain ray. We talked with Dr. Maurice Goldman, managing director for the company in the US, about the uses and cost of these devices.

"Being a guinea pig for a sonic ray was truly a whole lot worse than being a guinea pig for the pain ray. I would happily volunteer again to be hit by the Pentagon's pain ray. It was fun, like being Bugs Bunny dancing around when Elmer Fudd tries to shoot him. I never, ever again want to be hit by the Inferno" says Sharon, but while the sensation was unbearable, she actually didn't experiment the extreme reactions that this sound will cause if you are exposed to it for a longer time: vertigo, nausea, and pain in the chest.

It's useful, Jackal. It could be used for many, many things.
Hitler help invite a machine that blasted sound to kill its target.

If you could make the sound concentrated in a beam or something and make it more powerful.. you could make a gun like something from starwars :eek:

Ever heard of Tear Gas?

Have you ever hit by tear gas? It can really make people sick. It's got a lot of chemicals that can get into your lungs and eyes and do a lot of damage. Actually, there's an international treaty on tear gas I think. You can't use it in war usually, but for some reason we can still use it for domestic issues. Although I think we can use it in Iraq because they authorized riot control agents.... Well... that's what I was told, so they also might have just lied I don't really know.

Here's an article on it so you can update your information on it!

Maybe you should get your own health care so that the government doesn't have to waste money to keep you healthy. See, in the US we get to choose where we go to the doctor, and in return we don't rely on the government to take care of us. That way your tax money can go to making better transportation and paying our military and government officials and teachers and police officers and fire fighters and other things that matter.

Eerr... In the US MANY people have health care. They go to a doctor, give them their Health Care (Medi-Cal or w/e) and viola, free service, maybe medicine, etc.

Yep, one step closer to Socialism! But then again, you've got the choice from someone with... one term as a senator, and then another Clinton... either way we get a pretty bad start.

Huh... I guess carrying a microphone and a directional amp to a riot is out of the question then?

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news.
