RoboCops have anti-demonstration microsensors

Rampaging in crowded places and getting away with is no longer possible: Law enforcement agencies learn about all participants of unsanctioned protests and demonstrations. Microscopic sensors that stick to clothes and skin are sprayed over crowds; enabling police to track and prosecute every rioter.

Owen Shaughnessy The only reason I agree with this is because you know who the rioters are in relation to the surrounding people. Don't just spray them willy-nilly. Have someone or several people control a swarm with a targeting system. Humans are most definitely better at discerning targets at this point in time than robots or AI's are. 22 Mar 2019
potato microscopic sensors? in 2040?? IMPOSSIBLE! 06 Feb 2019
James Fitzgerald I could see this happening in the US. 06 Feb 2019
Victor Brueggemann "Wrong people" will not get sprayed. There will be a superabundance of extra people to replace them, many forcibly displaced out rural communities so that they can be more easily controlled by their progressive masters. 06 Feb 2019
Neil Gupta Micro-trackers that can be sprayed could be pretty easily gotten rid of by changing clothes and taking a shower. It would also be annoying for police to keep track of millions or possibly more micro-trackers when most of them probably just blew away with the wind. 06 Feb 2019

Ilya Babayev Unsanctioned riots in Japan? Unbelievable that something can be unsanctioned or unorganised there. 06 Feb 2019
Math Japan would never have anything remotely close to this, just because they're one of the safest places in the world. If someone got mugged in the middle of the night in Tokyo, it'd make the national news because it's so uncommon. 06 Feb 2019
Codo Fleckins If this concept is attempted, the riots will spread to the companies producing the sensors, and there will be riots about the concept itself. "A man has the right to choose." 06 Feb 2019

Chris Bartlett I'm sure this will happen in some places, but currently it's unlikely it would be used in Japan as there is little need as such surveillance violates the Japanese constitution. To date very little surveillance is carried out in freedom loving Japan. Of course that could change if threats or the perception of threats were to increase in severity. 06 Feb 2019
Devin McLaughlin But what if the wrong people get sprayed? 06 Feb 2019
