Who needs a sound wave weapon. I remember reading a Sci-Fi story before (forgot what it was called) where people used images to disable or kill. The theory behind it was, that the brain can only process certain streams of data, like a computer, in patterns. Like any computer, it could be blocked or made to crash with a virus. Specific images were rendered, patterns etc, that had different effects on the human brain. Looking at it would cause your brain to have an "error" as you could put it, and disable you or kill you right on the stop. In the story they used certain images to prevent riots etc...and some were used by the military to kill their opponents by being placed in random spots etc. In the story there was a terrorist group going around posting killing images at random public places causing mayhem etc. It was a pretty good story, and made sense if you think about it. A kid in the story even built up resistance by looking at non severe images, and when faced with a kill one, he actually took it like a champ and survived !!!
