Controversial thread time.
I heard this on the radio news today and immediately thought it might be the way to go. Then i thought minority report. Thought crime. Big brother... etc
Then i wondered how far we could possibly take this... could, if considered successful, it be extended to all people who have served at her majesty's pleasure.
I'm also curious as to what will happen to those who fail the detector test, will they just be followed round the whole time electrodes hanging off their arm..."you want to rape and murder that woman?"
How will it actually work (in theory, haha).
Also it is possible to manipulate this system to give false results? I know some people can 'fool' lie dectector tests and some seem to make their red buzzer alarms go off just by blinking.
The article linked talks of trials/pilots, i may look those up.
Thoughts? Idea's? Comments?
