One of the best things about playing online is playing with others. One of the worst things? Playing with others. Some people are total dicks! Wouldn't you love to shut them up?


As previously reported on sister site Gizmodo, the SpeechJammer is a gun that "jams" people's speech, by firing their words right back at them within milliseconds of being said.

If only they'd develop a gun that silences stupid forum comments!
