Brain fingerprinting glyphs

Peoples brains go "visual item recognized" with a P300 wave when presented with a previously viewed visual stimuli; this technique has been used at court plus has been popularized as Brain Fingerprinting; The idea here is that lasers make a big visible oddity that has superior brain fingerprint resolution

there is Apu at the Kwiki mart; suddenly a Simpsons character demands ALL the Krusty Kash NOW

Apu says the code word, then a brief lasershow happens, a speaker says "humor Raymond Coolidge Luxury Madison Yacht Van Buren"

Something that looks like giant blue angstrom Å appears flanked with a semaphore flag

Apu diplomatically says "oh you are such the kidder, are you sure that all the Krusty Kash is the demand you are politely being humorous about at this time"

The Simpsons character could either actually make off with all the Krusty Kash or go along with Apus face saving humor

If they actually thieve the Krusty Kash then Officer Marge, standing in for Wiggum, who turned out to be ...less than a cop... can just use the P300 brain scanner on a bunch of Springfieldites, the number of which that have seen a vivid laser blue Å with flanking semaphores is few

better yet, Apu recently upgraded the software thus a red Я as well as a green ω are vividly imprinted on the Springfieldites brain

each of these is published as being better than 99 per hundred effective; the lawyer tosses out the green ω, as it turns out the person has a thing for green neon underpants with naval semaphore play, and has their profile on greenneonunde rpantssemaphoreplay.com to prove it

regarding the p300 brain response to the unique audio string Raymond Coolidge Luxury that is better than 70 per hundred, thus various composites like Madison Yacht Van Buren can be used to greatly narrow the possibility a person has heard the full phrase to 99 per hundred effectiveness

nevertheless there is better than 999:1 chance that the Å with the Я have accurately identified the Krusty Kash thief

combined with the audio P300 response thats about a chance per 100,000 of error

fortunately Krusty Kash has a published value of 1/20th of a ₡, Thus all of the Krusty Kash was worth less than $50 making the crime a misdemeanor

What: basically just a vivid memory laser with sound glyph that has been characterized as a supertaggant with the court established brain fingerprinting [link] system

Audio P300 is new here, there are no references yet I think it might work

this immunizes many places against robbery, I have read that the fluorescent fingerprint check system reduced check fraud 9/10 this might be highly effective at reducing crime

everything I write is public domain

Recently the National Research Institute of Police Science in Japan has decided to introduce a new EEG recordable polygraph system into each prefectural police department [beanangel, Oct 14 2008]


       This would be a good way to prove that someone was at the scene of a crime. I guess that it would be of value when the robber was well disguised; otherwise, a CCTV system would be cheaper for the same reliability.

       as long as you're going to flash the robber with a xenon flash gun.... why don't you just *shoot* him ?

       yes but there'd be far less "returning to the scene of the crime"
FlyingToaster, Oct 20 2008

       I am not at all convinced that "brain fingerprinting" is at all reliable - certainly less reliable than a polygraph, which is about as reliable as as a very unreliable thing. So, I'm not convinced that your basic premise is correct.   

       So, sadly and yet reassuringly, I must fail to bun this.   

       Filter, Beany, filter. Either on the way in or on the way out.
