Italian inventor creates "love mattress" for better boots knocking

Italian Inventor Creates 'Love Mattress' With a Hole for the Knees
The mattress, which at 9.8 inches tall is slightly higher than regular ones, features a small, removable block that creates a "hole" in which a person can kneel comfortably. When it's time to sleep, the block can be put back in place -- leaving the mattress with a smooth surface not unlike other beds. A set of handles attached to the head of the mattress and each bed comes with a set of sexy tailor-made red sheets. "We locked a couple in the factory to have them try out the prototype for a night, and it worked," Tonelli said, adding that full-scale production is now in the works.

Researchers getting closer to mind-reading technology

Nothing here about false positives, which is to say, potential innocent people pegged as terrorists by the system, but an interesting article nonetheless. Medical Daily: Reading terrorists minds about imminent attack
In the Northwestern study, when researchers knew in advance specifics of the planned attacks by the make-believe "terrorists," they were able to correlate P300 brain waves to guilty knowledge with 100 percent accuracy in the lab, said J. Peter Rosenfeld, professor of psychology in Northwestern's Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences. For the first time, the Northwestern researchers used the P300 testing in a mock terrorism scenario in which the subjects are planning, rather than perpetrating, a crime. The P300 brain waves were measured by electrodes attached to the scalp of the make-believe "persons of interest" in the lab. The most intriguing part of the study in terms of real-word implications, Rosenfeld said, is that even when the researchers had no advance details about mock terrorism plans, the technology was still accurate in identifying critical concealed information. "Without any prior knowledge of the planned crime in our mock terrorism scenarios, we were able to identify 10 out of 12 terrorists and, among them, 20 out of 30 crime- related details," Rosenfeld said. "The test was 83 percent accurate in predicting concealed knowledge, suggesting that our complex protocol could identify future terrorist activity."
