A recently solved murder case in Dubai shows that science fiction movies have become a reality. Instead of traditional methods, the Dubai Police solved the case using a new technology developed by Brainwave Science, Inc, which makes it possible to literary read the minds of crime suspects.

This technology is called iCognative, but those familiar with it often call it “memory print” or “brain fingerprinting.” The science behind it is fairly easy to understand. When the human brain recognizes a known object, image, or piece of information, it involuntarily emits the so-called P300 wave.

The P300 wave is an event-related brain potential that can be measured using electroencephalography (EEG), and that’s exactly what iCognative does.

“We used the technology in a murder at a warehouse. Experts showed [the workers] pictures related to the crime, which only the person who committed it would know,” said Lt Colonel Mohammad Al Hammadi, Director of Criminology for Dubai Police. “After the session, the [brain mapping] device helped identify the main suspect who then admitted to having committed the murder.”

Lt Colonel Mohammad Al Hammadi has confirmed that the Dubai Police will continue using iCognative when solving future crimes. Other law enforcement agencies around the globe are also trialing the technology, while others, such as India’s police force, have been using it for years.

The technique for the detection of concealed information with event-related brain potentials was pioneered by American neuroscientist Lawrence A. Farwell, who described its potential for lie detection in his 2012 research paper.

If you would like to see a real convicted murderer, Steven Avery, be brain fingerprinted by Lawrence A. Farwell, you can watch the second season of Netflix’s “Making of a Murderer“. If this isn’t good use of science fiction, then I don’t know what is.

Due to environmental and safety regulations, as well as rising costs of insurance and fuel, the cost of car ownership has never been higher. While modern public transportation systems in many countries already provide an attractive alternative, the recent COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted their limitations. Fortunately, there’s another option available: long-term car renting, and McKinsey predicts that it will generate almost 30 percent of the automotive industry’s revenue by 2030 thanks to startups like Carasti, which has just launched its service following a successful pre-Series A funding round last month.

Based in Dubai, Carasti describes itself as an all-inclusive car subscription app that removes all the hassle associated with car ownership, such as service and maintenance, while preserving all the benefits.

“Our subscription model aims to make car ownership as flexible and affordable as possible, providing our customers with an easy alternative to car ownership,” explains the company’s CEO, Claudio Esposito-Aiardo. “There are no hidden costs, no extra fees, and no financial surprises. We simply don’t believe that you should be weighing yourself down with debts, bank loans, and payments just to drive a car.”

Carasti users can choose between two distinct subscription models. The month-to-month subscription model provides access to a variety of nearly new cars with a monthly, 6 month or yearly commitment. The mini lease subscription model lets users choose a 12 or 24-month plan on a brand-new car.

Regardless of which model you pick, you always have to provide only your Emirates ID, driving license, passport copy, or visa copy. All subscriptions include insurance, maintenance, roadside assistance, and flexible car switching. Carasti supports both Android and iOS devices, and your first car can be delivered to you in as little as 4 hours from downloading it.
