Recently covered in detail on Patent Bolt, a patent application for an advanced set of handcuffs was published by the U.S. Patent & Trademark office in late November. Filed by a group called Scottsdale Inventions during late 2010, technology that could potentially go into the handcuff design includes an accelerometer, location sensing device, microphone, camera and a biometric sensor to measure a detainee's physical state. However, the group also has designed the handcuffs to house electrodes that would deliver an electric shock to a detainee. more
