I hear that the old forensic phrenology drones are
being are being phased out,
in favour of W-Band Fraunhofer radar ones.
They were always a little twitchy and the one on
Liverpool St station always seemed to pick on me,
just changed at Bethnal Green.
As you must of noticed that
the old ones were

from typical potatoes.

frequency of light or Thz waves to see the scalp through the
hair. That way they could update the AI face readers to
include head shape...
||If you use microwaves you can see the brain. Takes a while,
