UNIVERSAL HEDONICS gathers the abstracts and drawing sheets of numerous patents for neurotech devices, directed energy weapons, and remote emotional state sensors from a diverse array of companies and persons. Since patents do not actually require the inventions to be functioning or in a prototype state, they act as a site for projecting the inventor’s technosomatic desires regardless of physical feasibility. Yet many of these patents, such as “Target tracking system and method with jitter reduction suitable for directed energy systems” are verifiably real technologies whose interdictory applications have been applied to protestors and dissidents.
