(zaman) - A new type of prison is being constructed in Japan next spring in the southern Japanese city of Yamaguchi.
Instead of concrete walls, a wire fence will be used. Infrared sensors will be used for surveillance. And instead of prison guards, prisoners will carry surveillance tools attached to their uniforms, reports Trend.
The devices will enable constant computerized surveillance of prisoners. Nonetheless, only prisoners convicted under minor charges will be kept in the prison.
