Thread: The Bedazzler Puke Light

  1. #1

    Default The Bedazzler Puke Light

    Lady Ada and Phil Torrone made a $250 working replica of the Dazzler, a $1 million non-lethal puke flashlight developed at the request of the US Dept. of Homeland Security. The link below includes complete instructions for making one of your own.

    I'd be curious to hear from anyone who's actually seen one of these in action. Do they really work??

    Sorry, I have retired from flashlight modding, I do not offer machining services, & I do not make custom flashlights. Thank you for your understanding.

    Default LED barf machine

    I'm sure some of you may have seen this on slashdot.org, but here is a link to instructions on making your own LED based sea sickness inducing flashlight. Enjoy.

    hahaha what a waste of a million dollars, high pitched noise is much more incapacitating....i don't want to give someone welder's eye and a headache 2 hours from now, i want them to be incapacitated now....not to mention that thing was way to big to actually be carried on a belt or anything....no thanks...just plain old bullets for me (to use not be have used on)

    Yeah but for $250 for the DIY version I was thinking it would be nice mounted in the rear window of my car to take care of tailgaters.

    That is certainly an interesting idea, but I have a suspicion it would raise a few legal eyebrows if you implemented it. The cops would have no trouble tracking you down - they would just have to follow the trail of cars pulled off the road with all the drivers throwing up on the sidewalk, lol.

    Is this what the random strobe feature on the Liteflux's is supposed to do?

    Or maybe on the front porch at Halloween for the teenage trick or treaters that get rude.

    i dunno how effective it would be...otherwise we'd be puking every time a cop pulled us over or an ambulance went past...i think its an all right idea for blinding but i doubt it causes sickness that rapidly, and if it does, close your eyes

    Is it the green color or the frequency that causes these irritations? If it's the frequency, I think there are a few lights that will let you choose the strobe frequency, such as the LF2XT. Will this work?

    I just read about this on Slashdot. Cool project to play with even if it doesn't make you puke

    I've merged these 2 threads as they were on the same topic. I had to choose between 2 superb existing titles, so the earlier of the 2 threads gets it.

    I've always wondered how well will products like this work if you counter it with strobe of a higher frequency and single point intensity ....say MCE on strobe....

    Your BM LOOKS like a BM . . . not really, it looks fine. I just wanted to make the joke!

    Concerning the green color, possibly yes. there is much yet to be learned about lighting, waves etc. green LED light has many wonderful benefits so it is possible that a "mutation" of it could have a negative effect.

    A rapid strobe is irritating but not incompacitating. I also recall a version that appeared to use red, blue, white green. The exact known (or yet to be dicsovered) frequency would be the strobe's main source of effect. one such immediate effect could be seizures and nausea. The "common" strobe frequencies of most lights is not designed for that function.
