New Robocop headset....

New Robocop headset....

The 'Robocop' headset that lets police see through walls and identify suspects just by LOOKING at them

A headset computer promises to give police officers and other emergency services Robocop-like abilities.

The Golden-i device, similar to the Glass project being developed by Google, offers the ability to see through walls thanks to infrared technology.

It is operated by voice commands and head movements and allows the wearer to access vital information without using their hands.

Golden-i has been developed by U.S. company Kopin Corporation, but software solutions tailored to police, firefighters and paramedics have been created by Nottinghamshire-based firm Ikanos Consulting.

It was shown off at the CES 2013 show in Las Vegas last month, although the firm says it is 'too early' to give a price.

It is set to be trialled this year, and could go on sale before Google's Glass project, which is a far more compact headset the search giant also plans to release this year.

The Police Pro application provides real-time situational awareness in the field by allowing officers to record incidents for later analysis and view live video feeds from other Golden-i headsets.

All the Police Officer needs is a PCSO....

We can identify the nominals- we interact with them every day.

We can tell her what's behind a wall - we've been there.

Moral.... Less technology, more PCSOs

Totally agree.
Anyway, what do these things cost? They cant even supply decent uniform.. also it looks a little fragile so the first time its taken out of the nick will probably be the last time its working correctly.

Naa....these things will never take off in the UK. We have a history of policing by consent which involves interacting with the community.
This will be great for the USA as their cops are only there to arrest purps......

I can ID most suspects because I know them! Its my job!

As for looking through wall, I see no need for that!

Nope, not for me!

Aside from the price, which i'm guessing is going to prohibitively expensive, I can forsee some problems in relation to RIPA regarding this...

She is a model, its obvious lol thus if you are buying uniform for a photoshoot unless your tv extraing, then its illegal to wear force crests.
