    And I was hasty. This one will go 30 meters underwater and still be effective.

    So now we get the pocket version of the lights from Tom Clancy's Debt of Honor? Nice.

    Can it be sold to private individuals if only the military and law enforcement can use it?

    Yep. They're expensive, but they are available.

    It'll be interesting when a bank is robbed by a crew brandishing these.

    Expensive? It is still half the price of a name brand pistol. $299 ain't bad. I'd rather the criminals used non-lethal blinders than a 9mm, right?

    Supposedly up to 98% of defensive gun use in the US consisting of "brandishing", meaning the sight of the gun is enough to deter the attacker.

    Somehow I don't think these'll be as effective in that regard for a good long while.

    now all I need is a focused EMP weapon to mount this to and all my neighborhood problems will be taken care of!

    How long until bowel disruptors are a reality?

    Have no idea, but I predict looooong lines at bathrooms in Washington DC and state capitals when they are.

    It's not as powerful but the hammerhead features a strobe capacity it's makers describe as "very disturbing".

    Of course, for maximum effect, they should polarise the light then issue the users with polarising shades to block the light.

    That website says it can also be used for "emergency raves." That made me laugh a bit.
