Devices can produce deafening or disorienting sounds

DEF CON has produced yet another attack that could have been predicted.

A lot of us, did that unintentionally during our teens - listening to the various rock bands of the era!

 

King Crimson, comes to mind, especially on early Quadraphonic systems at high volume.

Once upon a time, doing something like that would be quite a risk to take if you weren't backed by a government --- assuming you had motivation --- & would require the following: -

 

  1. Do a lot of research

  3. Deliver it to the target

 

Today, courtesy of the internet & IoT, it's become much simpler and can be done by anyone --- boredom being a possible motivating factor --- with little risk.
