A containment fence provides an electro containment force to manage access and egress to an area. The fence includes a scanning and monitoring system to identify and approve requests to move through the fence.

The fence can provide vocal communications and can also project information across the barrier’s surface. The system also has the ability to stun individuals attempting to pass through the barrier or that it identifies as a threat.[1]

Mood Control Technology

Containment Fence controls

The containment fence provides a technology platform for implementation of Afferent Teleplasticity, using electromagnetic radiation (EMR) to disrupt thought patterns of those within the wall.[2] The containment fence emits EMR and high pitched audio signals to modify people’s moods, creating feelings ranging from mild depression to blissful satisfaction to manic rage.

Known Uses
