question: suppose the speaker has a large ego and enjoys hearing themselves talk?

Lmao this article is so stupid 'FREE SPEECH STOPPED - EVERYWHERE!!' Nice sensationalist bullshit going on there. The effect this gun has is purely psychological. It's [i]insanely fucking easy[/i] to get over the fact that you can hear your own voice speaking if you focus on it and realize the cause, and guess what - covering your ears and speaking will 100% invalidate this "method to destroy AMERICA and FREE SPEECH" The major reason why it's annoying and stops you from talking on skype of w/e is because its unexpected, and because you want to fix the issue before you talk. It isn't because it magically stops you. If you have something you REALLY want to get out, and you know you have one of these things pointed at you, hearing your own voice won't stop it.
Does it also play the sound of nails on a blackboard?
[QUOTE=Protocol7;34944383]So does it just make it annoying to talk?[/QUOTE] [QUOTE]The gun works by listening in with a directional microphone, and then, after a short delay of around 0.2 seconds, playing it back with a directional speaker. This triggers an effect that psychologists call Delayed Auditory Feedback (DAF), which has long been known to interrupt your speech (you might’ve experienced the same effect if you’ve ever heard your own voice echoing through Skype or another voice comms program).[/QUOTE] It literally annoys you with your own voice :v:

But we already have guns that can make people stop talking. [img]http://www.m1911.org/images/welcome.jpg[/img]
[QUOTE=Fort83;34944924]Use this on the republicans, so they stop spewing their hate[/QUOTE] can you imagine the hilarity if one would sneak one into one of their rally parties? it would probably be mistaken for a lethal gun though and shit would be thrown.
[QUOTE=Fergeh;34944955]I've never experienced this on skype or whatever, wish there was something on the net that replicates it for you at home, I'm really curious about how it feels now[/QUOTE] [url]http://www.speechmonitor.org/[/url]
[QUOTE=nekosune;34945241]is a bit more then annoying: [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delayed_Auditory_Feedback[/url][/QUOTE] Hmm, I tried the PC software and it doesn't stop me from talking at all, it's probably because I know it's coming so it doesn't have an effect. [QUOTE=Val67;34945345][url]http://www.speechmonitor.org/[/url][/QUOTE] Yeah this one.
[QUOTE=Canuhearme?;34944442]Well it [B]is[/B] Japan we're talking about here, they have rules on rules about how to do things "proper."[/QUOTE] Those rules often involve tentacles, unfortunately...
[QUOTE=Raptortheawesome;34945201]Does it also play the sound of nails on a blackboard?[/QUOTE] Now [I]that[/I] would be effective.
This would be good in debates. I hate it when someone just talks over the person who is trying to make a point.
If this was used on Republicans, it wouldn't make a difference. It's effect on Santorum: [video=youtube;js3BYcHmBhE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=js3BYcHmBhE&hd=1[/video]
So, these were the fuckers playing Borderlands with an open mike.
This is quite possibly the stupidest thing I have ever seen come from Japan. [URL="http://itre.cis.upenn.edu/myl/Yates1963.pdf"]DAF does not work this way.[/URL] It's tested with headphones and several delay variables to work on [I]some[/I] people, for many the bones of your face provide enough feedback to supersede it. In instances where it only affects one ear more than another, it won't work. In instances where phase changes, it won't work. In instances where high frequencies are attenuated (the most common type absorbed in a room), it won't work, and will actually make you speak more clearly. In instances where low frequencies are boosted (the most common to be boosted), it won't work, and will actually make you speak more clearly. In instances with noise, it won't work, and will actually make you speak more clearly. Here I was expecting something that might actually be of use, like a set of microphones that sampled a speech pattern and then had a synthesizer put together an expected subsequent sound, invert it, and play it back, much like you'd use to muffle machinery. But this, fuck.
Suppose someone isn't a huge fucking idiot and doesn't just abruptly stop talking? "whaa...? oh shit THAT'S MY VOICE DEAR GOD I'M FIGHTING SORCERORS"
Isn't there a technique that stops stuttering that works like this? If I remember correctly, the delay in which it plays your speech back was longer, and it made the brain think it's not you speaking and you stopped stuttering. Am I completely wrong?
Oh my god when there is an echo in a chatroom I refuse to speak because I can't say more than three words and try to rush in what I want to say before the echo kicks in.

Apparently I am not in danger.i just tried an app called idiotizer that uses the same effect and I can talk just fine.
mute people are getting their revenge oh god run for your lives
