China has developed & # 39; the world's first portable sonic gun that can disperse crowds by causing painful vibrations in the eyeballs, eardrum and internal organs.
The rifle, developed by law enforcement officers and the military, uses low-frequency sounds, which has a & # 39; biological effect & # 39; on the body, according to the South China Morning Post.
Studies have shown that deeper sounds or infrasound can cause anything from mild discomfort to dizziness, vomiting, intestinal cramps, organ damage and heart attacks, the publication reports.

The sonic weapon, which is usually mounted on vehicles, is hand-held and powered by gas that will emit a deep and monotonous sound when heated, the Chinese Academy of Sciences said.
The project, launched in 2017, has been approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology for mass production.
& # 39; The panel suggested that the fruit of the project should be turned into practical equipment as quickly as possible & # 39 ;, Professor Xie Xiujuan, chief scientist of the project, told the publication.
It is not known when the weapon will be used by Chinese soldiers or law enforcement officers or whether they will be used for anti-government protests in Hong Kong.

It comes after the police have used non-lethal weapons to tackle protesters in the autonomous region of China after weeks of political unrest.
Riot police have used tear gas and rubber bullets to spread demonstrations while violence escalated in the street.
Hong Kong has been shocked by a series of anti-government protests over the past three months.
The demonstrations were initially fueled by a bill that allowed some criminal suspects to be sent to mainland China to stand trial.
