I wonder if this brain scanner could be incorporated within the house arrest anklet jail system.

If some how it could recognize patterns an audio signal as well as a silent signal could be used to help curb activity/actions of those under house arrest.

  • Nov 19 2012: I once heard that house-arrest is unconstitutional. (Though I'm not sure about it - I didn't look into it any further.)

    How about we scan the brains of those who break Constitutional laws while in their "leadership" roles?
    As Russell says, it does seem Orwellian.

    Nov 8 2012: The idea that a brain scanner be added to a imprisonment devise has Orwellian tones, however I can see a bio-moniter to record drug use or violence. sounds good. Those could be incorporated using physiological information only.
