Some whizkidds developed a Artificial Intelligence supported device that could regcognize and prevent crimes from happening.
They tested it in Amsterdam and within an hour 15 pickpockets and one molester were identified and arrested. They tested it in Rome and within half an hour 30 pickpockets were arrested. They tested it in New York but were shutdown by the missing FCC guidelines, it would probably take over a year to get certification.
They tested it in Beijing and within an hour the device was copied and the next day on sale at Aliexpress.
They tested in some African city and within an hour the device was stolen.

I saw that photo probably 20 years ago for the first time (just give me time to come to terms with that). I doubt there is any better version to be found.

Here's something similar:
Complexity is the number-one enemy of high-quality code.

Here's one I found amusing.

How is that even possible?



To use that on a human or an animal.

Did you hear about the Arab who bought a dairy?
Now he's a milk sheikh.  ;D

The charger may not be used on humans or animals, that won't stop BigClive trying it out on sausage rolls or babybell cheese.

Even the most moist hot dog wiener isn't likely to do much at battery charging voltage.  :)

Touché, though sir, touché...  :)

Unless they also made chargers for the "B Battery" that the oldschool vacuum tube radios used to use. They existed in 90V and 120V variants. Now that could cook a hotdog

I have a funny feeling that "Voltcraft Plus Conrad charger manager 2020" model isn't going have the oomph to charge a 48, 60, 90 or 120V B-battery, "universal" though it may supposedly be.   ::)

If you look at it in a three-dimensional way (Tetraeder), then it could work.  :-DD

Can't see how that works, maybe you need a 4th dimension.
