An MIT student has been arrested at gunpoint after allegedly walking into Logan International Airport with a fake bomb strapped to her chest. State police say 19-year-old Star Simpson, a sophomore from Hawaii, had a computer circuit board, wiring and a putty that later turned out to be Play-Doh in plain view over a black hooded sweatshirt she was wearing
wonder what is the deal with this?
“She’s extremely lucky she followed the instructions or deadly force would have been used,” Pare told The Associated Press. “And she’s lucky to be in a cell as opposed to the morgue.”
I love to build things and I love crazy ideas.....
.....Before that, I lived for a long time in Hawaii, while traveling the world and saving the planet from evil villains with my delivered-just-in-time gadgets.

I just saw the story, It doesn't look like a bomb.
It is just a breadboard with wires and lights. Her sweaters had the sock it to me comment from the old show laugh in. there was no fake tnt sticks or bricks, it was just a 4 by 12 breadboard.
If she was a EE grad it would make sence, a project to combine her studies and fashion. It is just a small circuit board.
