Minority Report Weapon

Can anyone give me the details of the weapon used in the movie Minority Report which had to be spun around each time before it was fired? I figure the book gave some details about it so if anyone can clue me in, I’d appreciate it.

The ‘book’ was an excellent Phillip K Dick short story, and I believe that particular device was an invention of the filmmakers. :cool:

Dunno about that weapon – but ya gotta love the Sick Stick.

Particularly because it’s so fun to say. Sick stick, Sick stick, Sick stick. And it works a lot faster than an off-the-shelf ipecac.

I can confirm that it 'twarn’t in the story.

Vaguly recalling a “Making of…” special, I believe that weapon was sonic-based. After that, your guess is as good as mine.

reminds me of this invention:


most of the technology in that movie only seems so close…
