Our first open source Homeland Security non-lethal weapon project - The "THE BEDAZZLER: A Do-it-yourself Handheld LED-Incapacitator".
After attending a conference where the $1 million "sea-sick flashlight" (named "THE DAZZLER") was demonstrated by the US Dept. of Homeland Security, we decided to create our own version. For under $250, you can build your own dazzler
and we've released the source code, schematics and PCB files
to make it easy. A great Arduino project for people who really
like blinking LEDs. We also added in a mode selection so you can put it into some pretty color-swirl modes, great for raves and parties!Yes this project does indeed cause: Nausea, dizziness, headache, flashblindness, eye pain and (occasional?) vomiting!
So don't use it on your friends or pets.Please note: This is not a kit, nor for sale...so don't ask us.
All documentation is on the design
pages.Mad props to Scott Johnston for LED assistance.
