Scottsdale Inventions has recently patented the “Apparatus and System for Augmented Detainee Restraint.” The set of futuristic handcuffs is able to do more than just constrain detainees, it can administer electric shocks, inject medication, sedative, and other substances. The apparatus responds to certain commands that are “activated by internal control systems or by external controllers that transmit activation signals to the restraining device.”

The patent filing explains that when a shock or specific substance is being administered or is about to be, a warning light would illuminate to show the pending peril. Boundary controls could also be set up to automatically trigger an action when the detainee crossed a certain zone.

Whether this patent will be actualized is another story. Netizens have already expressed their concerns over the handcuffs as it could do more danger than good if it were to fall into the wrong hands.
