China is reportedly developing a mind-reading device that can detect when men are watching porn in an effort to ban the consumption of adult videos

It’s no secret that China is one of the strictest countries in the world when it comes to enacting measures to have total control over its residents, and the country’s latest move involves mind reading. According to recent reports, China has developed a mind-reading device that can detect when men are watching porn, which is a move to eventually ban all porn consumption even though adult videos are already illegal in the country.

@NYPost reports that Chinese researchers allegedly claim to have an official patent for a device that is capable of “reading a man’s mind” and specifically detecting when he is viewing porn. The current prototype of the device is said to have the ability to detect brain waves that are activated when a man is exposed to lewd content. The research was carried out on 15 male college students who were placed in front of a computer screen playing porn, while wearing the device on their heads. The mind-reading device could then process a collection of photos and videos, and flag anything suspicious.

Xu Jianjun, who conducted the research and is also director of the electrical engineering department at Beijing Jiaotong University, said the intention behind the device is “for the detection of incorrect information.” He also claims that the results are 80% accurate and can filter out additional signals that could trigger brain waves when emotions are emitted to non-porn related content.

Meanwhile, government officials in China are getting serious about cracking down on porn consumption by deploying censors known as “porn evaluators” who are tasked with combing social media to flag inappropriate content.

Because pornography is illegal in China, the investigation of the mind-reading device was difficult, as the explicit content obtained had to be redacted and censored to avoid facing criminal charges.
