An armature that is spring loaded launches this Frisbee. It has a timer that has an average speed that the launcher launches the disk at already in it so that can calculate when to start spraying. When the disk reaches the designated distance its relatively thin pepper spray cartridges are released. When released the pepper spray travels to multiple nozzles around the edge of the frisbee that are aimed towards the ground but tilted just enough to aid the initial spin.

       I suppose it would work pretty well against rabid dogs.

       Flippin' Sweet! Can these be secretly supplied to the d-bags playing frisbee "golf" in the park?

       But... What is it for?

Perhaps the clue is in the category, up there, on the right.

       Is this to end a riot, or to start one ? We ask merely for information ....

       Either, depending on the music you play over the loudspeakers.

       Nitrous oxide might end a riot faster.   

       the gas that it spews is copletly interchangable. //Is this to end a riot, or to start one// to end one but i suppose you could use it to start one if you wanted to.

       Given the varying skill levels that human beings exhibit when it comes to throwing a frisbee, it's probably best that this be machine launched (armature ?) to minimize blue-on-blue incidents.   

       I'm having difficulty envisioning the mechanism, though. I'm picturing something complicated, which makes it all the more fun.

       //Perhaps the clue is in the category, up there, on the right.//   

       In asking what it was for, I was attempting to get my mind around the idea that this might have some application where current hand-held, or grenade launched pepper spray products would not be as effective as a frisbee-launched sprayer.   

       My appologies. I often forget that the HB does not necessarily require any such justification.

       OK, dammit, who threw the pepper-spray boomerang?
Fishrat, Jun 08 2008
  

       This would be a really fun idea if it were made into some sort of game (as I originally thought it was intended) - in a similar vein to Russian Roulette.

       Why not have a boomerang so you can catch it, reload it and chuck it again?
Bad Jim, Jun 09 2008
  

       Just throw the frisbee upwards at about a 45 degree angle. You'll then be able to catch it as easily as a frisbee.
