Computer forensics expert Dr. Peter Anderson is not worried about the use of these devices.
“Theoretically it’s OK, but I don’t think it’s going to be used in any serious way,” Anderson told the Associated Press.
“There are a lot of really bad people who have these devices and you don’t want to take the chance of putting people in harm’s way.”
This could be a good thing, but Anderson said it is not something that he thinks should be taken lightly.
“It’s something that needs to be thought through,” he said.
“I think people need to be careful when they’re going to put themselves at risk of losing their lives.”
In addition to the dangers of using these devices, Anderson believes that they are a way for people to get away with things that they would never do in a court of law.
“This is all about power, and if you think you’re above that and you’re a little bit smarter than the other person, you’re going for it,” he added.
“You can do anything.”
