Below there is a list of five different crime stopping technologies used to catch criminals. One of these five is NOT real. Can you guess which one?

(Answer will be posted tomorrow.)

Which of the following crime stopping technologies is fake?

A. Shot Spotting– This technology is a gun shot sensor system that picks up the sound waves of a muzzle shot. This allows Police to respond more quickly to gunshots fired.

B. Smartwater– This technology allows owners to spray a unique chemical on their possessions to allow for quick identification in case of theft.

C. Body Odor Bio-metric Identifier– This technology stores the specific body odor of registered criminals that can be used later for canines to identify the culprit by the body odor at a new crime scene.

D. Drone Finger printer- This technology allows a drone to take pictures at a crime scene and identify finger prints to send directly to the lab for analysis.

E. Brain Fingerprinting- This technology is used to show the criminal pictures on a computer screen. They wear a headband that measures cognitive brain responses to stimuli on the screen. An EEG picks up specific responses.

    Wow, I wish for all 5 of these to be real. They all should be. But I’ll go with the drone fingerprinting. I don’t think drones can get that up close and personal yet. If not, my 2nd choice is the smart water, but again, all are amazing concepts and I hadn’t heard of any of them.

    The only one that I can wrap my little ol’ brain around is the shot spotting (visions of someone with headphones holding a mini-dish). I’ve never even heard of the others! Can’t wait to learn which is real!

      I know, right? There were so many here that I hadn’t heard of before either. Tomorrow’s post will have the answer, but also the website where I got them from. You can read about these five and some others. Thanks for stopping by, Angie!
