MODERN MARVELS® opens its arsenal to reveal the bizarre, downright astonishing, and (mostly) non-lethal equipment of today and the near-future.

  • For over a decade, MODERN MARVELS has brought grand stories to life.
  • The ultimate celebration and investigation of engineering excellence.
  • The "pukelight" is just one of the STRANGE WEAPONS examined in this episode.


Celebrating ingenuity, invention and imagination brought to life on a grand scale, MODERN MARVELS® tells the fascinating stories of the doers, dreamers and sometime-schemers who created everyday items, technological breakthroughs and man-made wonders.

Forget bullets, bombs and the other sledge-hammer technologies of the past. Modern arsenals have become far more sophisticated, particularly as non-lethal means of submission have risen in importance.

In this episode, MODERN MARVELS® scours the planet to find the most imaginative and unexpected weapons currently in use or under development.

Discover microwave-like rays that can be fired at the enemy and make them feel like they're being burned alive and laser weapons, truck- and aircraft-mountable, that can blow missiles out of the sky.

Then check out some of the newest non-lethal weapons, including a B.B. machine gun that can fire 150 pain-causing pellets per second and a flashing device nicknamed "the pukelight" that may make you lose your lunch.

Finally, examine ancient weapons that include a cutlery set containing hidden pistols and Ninja hand claws that would put the X-Men's Wolverine to shame.

Check your bullets — and expectations — at the door, it's time to survey the amazing world of STRANGE WEAPONS!
