In an effort to prevent prisoners from smuggling mobile phones in, British prisons will soon be introducing butt scanning chairs called Body Orifice Security Scanners, or BOSS.

The £6,500 chairs, which can also be used to detect drugs and weapons, have three ultra-sensitive sensors which can detect metal items as small as a pin, and will beep if the person has a foreign object hidden ‘behind the back door.'

I say being scanned in a non-intrusive manner sounds far more appealing than being digitally probed!
