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
annoying, I mean I understand that in
times of heightened security, we all have to put up
with a little indignity.
Who hasn't been a trifle annoyed at a train station
other public places when the
drone clamps onto your skull and deploys all those
little hammers? It was like having someone use a
typewriter on your head.
I always felt like a complete
berk and the worried stares of others that I might
terrorist wearing a bomb vest
who's had facial plastic surgery.
Fortunately, I prefer very short hair, but I can see
the old models wreaked havoc with the
more architectural hair-do.
Anyway, apparently new ones are contactless, it can
see through hair, and it only emits just 10 milliwatts
of power when transmitting.
