The countless criminal who-done-it television shows and movies have convinced audiences that just about anything is possible in the world of criminal tracking and identification technology. The Mind Job—this week’s Sunday in Shorts, takes a humorous trip into the possibilities of the criminal tracking and witness mindreading.
Watch what happens when witnesses to a crime are sent to a lab to have their memories accessed and viewed in order to catch a criminal.
Of course nothing goes as planned in a comedy like The Mind Job, and soon our attentions move away from the criminal pursuit, and into an examination of the deep resources of the human brain. We’re reminded that our memories have all sorts of things we wish we could forget, and do not wish to be shared.
See what happens when a man’s innermost memories are presented out in video form.
