London - A mind-reading machine that can produce pictures of what a person is seeing or remembering has been developed by scientists.
The device studies patterns of brainwave activity and turns them into a moving image on a computer screen.

At some point, it won't even have to read your mind. If TPTB put enough faith in this technology, then even if the computer is completely wrong, they'll believe it, over the person whose mind is supposedly being read. Or, they might just program it to tell them what they want to hear, incriminating the person without any way for him to refute it.
Isn't technology wonderful?

I would buy one of these, just for the fun of controlling something with my head. It would be the Etch-a-Sketch of the future!
I don't think it will have more significance than a polygraph, when it comes to crime. You can just think about, say, the police officer's head exploding when he asks you where you were at 5 o clock. Heres a simple way to beat it: When they ask you where were you/what were you doing when... just give them an answer. And think about each letter of what you are saying, in big fonts. They can't read your mind any more than you want to let them.
