Wired magazine has a neat blog entry about one of the newer non-lethal weapons in circulation: The Long-Range Acoustic Device. 

You can use it to broadcast important information over long distances during emergencies.  But it also has a setting that produces a shrill whine that will drive away bad guys.  The military and law-enforcement officials are using it to deter the nefarious.  Cruise-ships also have them to turn away pirates.
