Scientists have developed a helmet that uses brain waves to detect pornography.

Oh joy. In this case, I would ask snarkily what could go wrong. But in this instance, going right is going wrong.

Chinese scientists are said to have developed and tested an instrument that will help online censors better control pornography.

Researchers from Beijing Jiaotong University, China, have developed a helmet which can track brain waves. Scientists published their findings earlier this month in the peer-reviewed Journal of Electronic Measurement and Instrumentation.

Porn viewing is illegal in China. The government hires women to screen online photos and videos as \”jian Huang shi\” (porn appraisers).
