LED Incapacitator Answered

The LED Incapacitator
This story has way too much instructables-appeal to go unnoticed. I like the following line particularly: "There's one wavelength that gets everybody," says Lieberman. "Vlad calls it the evil color."
It all sounds a little too much like we will soon know one of these partners as Vlad the Incapacitator.

Slashdot's covering this story, also. Will the Dept of Homeland make sunglasses illegal? ;) (Blocking enough of the active wavelengths might be an effective countermeasure, although they cannot alter the pwm...unless there was a small amount of a phosphorescent dye added for wavelength persistence?? Doubtful....) Love the 'capacitors and incapacitors' comment...

Sounds like someone has for a gullible financial backer.

. Why do you say that? I don't know that it will work, but it looks like it would be similar to the sonic devices I've seen, it just overloads the eyes instead of the ears. I've heard that certain patterns of flashing lights on a TV can initiate seizures in some ppl, so why not a pattern/color/brightness that affects most ppl?.
