The U.S. Navy has developed a new non-lethal weapon (NLW) with a specific electronic device that prevents people from communicating. According to the article, the new electronic device effectively repeats a speaker’s own voice only back at them while they attempt to communicate. The purpose of this NLW is to completely disorient a target so that they are unable to interact effectively with others.
