breast implant detector

Early-detection of silicone implants
  [vote for,

I can't stand the damn things, so I envision a device which rests in your shirt pocket and is at the ready when you need to know the truth. Let's say you've met somebody in a nightclub. You give a human subject an embrace, and the device does a quick ultasound scan of the subject's bosom area, then a small display indicates either "normal" or "fake". I haven't figured out how to remotely detect the saline types yet, but I believe the silicone types are easily detected with ultrasound.

       I've got two breast implant detectors already. One on each arm.

       [Mumu] - I think you could develop your own echosounder location abilities with a little practice. Loud, high pitched sounds rebound differently from an implant than from a normal human breast. This has the advantage of being done at a distance, so you need not run the risk of approaching an implant. I suggest you make some facsimile implants, mount them on a mannikin across the room, then practice different loud, high pitched sounds until you hit the frequency that sounds different on the rebound. You could surreptitiously practice this in a bar or coffeeshop as well.

       That seems an odd thing to say, considering you are unable to determine their presence, and need a device to tell you. What, you just hate the idea of them?

       I agree with waugs. If you can't tell then why do you care? -
mrthingy, Aug 20 2003

       <sigh> what waugs said. <signed a human subject>
po, Aug 20 2003

       I read this as "breast implant compactor". Which I guess just might be the same thing. But what waugs and po said. And UnaBubba, for that matter.
DrCurry, Aug 20 2003

       Yeah, and [Curry], too...
k_sra, Aug 20 2003

       I feel so left out.

       since saltwater is heavier than water and fat is lighter then it might be possible to do some hot tub research comparing breast bouyancy
davidcreede, Aug 20 2003

       what bung said.

       What [thumbwax] would say if he read this.
angel, Aug 21 2003

       *blushes* flattery will get you everywhere.   

       Since one tit-head after another showed up for summer break, I stopped titting around, as it was a tit boring seeing titchy-brained ideas go tits-up.
thumbwax, Aug 21 2003

       *would* you have said that, angel?
po, Aug 21 2003

       Maybe not in those *exact* words.
angel, Aug 21 2003

       Well, if I hadn't said that, I'd have said what DeathNinja said. Me think DeathNinja funny.
thumbwax, Aug 21 2003

       Mmmm, tatas

       What [MrBurns] meant, but didn't want to say.
angel, Aug 22 2003

       what I thought but on consideration kept my big mouth shut.
po, Aug 22 2003

       What [I shoulda] said.
k_sra, Aug 22 2003

       What [Pericles] won't say because she thinks everyone's entitled to do whatever they please with the package God put them in.
Pericles, Aug 22 2003

       What [Pericles] won’t say.

       What [jutta] would say if she saw this list.

       <feeling [bigsleep]'s new breasts> Are you sure these are due to the hormone treatment and not to overeating and lack of exercise? </f[bg]'snb>
methinksnot, Apr 04 2006

       I'll still respect you in the morning [biggie].
