Psycho-Pass is a hi-tech cyberpunk anime series. Moreover, the show reveals the dark side of technology in the near future.
The Japanese drama features high-end technology with the capability to identify could-be criminals. While some of the elements shown in the series look realistic, others are completely impossible.
9. IMPOSSIBLE: PLASTINATION
Out of all the elements in the show, plastination can never make it to reality. This process is done to covert biological specimens into the plastic. However, this won’t happen in reality as there is already something similar to being put to use. Moreover, if plastination is turned into a real model, a lot of evil deeds can be done.
8. POSSIBLE: CYBERNETICS
Cybernetics happens to be one of the major technologies used in Psycho-pass. It is the process of turning a human into a cyborg. However, it can not be applied to the brain.
Moreover, the reason it sounds realistic is that we are on way to something similar. Because we humans are already using artificial limbs. With the advancements in technology, cybernetics will bring psycho-pass into reality.
7. IMPOSSIBLE: PSYCHO-PASS INDEX
Obviously, PSI is the key index of the anime series. This index scans the individual’s brain and identifies criminal potential. While tools like lie detector machines exist, something like this won’t be available in the near future.
6. POSSIBLE: HYPER-OATS
It is the advanced food in the show that quickly became the main food supply in Japan. Moreover, this food crop underwent multiple modifications.
On the surface, it appears completely irrational. But if research and manpower of multiple countries are combined, it might be possible.
5. IMPOSSIBLE: CANDY
Candy is a hologram servant jellyfish capable of doing every work assigned to it. On first thought, drones are already there to work as a robotic maid. However, a hologram is incapable of doing all kinds of physical activities.
4. POSSIBLE: COMMUFIELD
It’s like a virtual world portal which can be entered through a headgear. Moreover, it resembles social media to a large extent. Because the players are required to finish up tasks to increase fame and earn a profit.
So this is entirely possible as a lot of influencers are already earning through social media channels.
3. IMPOSSIBLE: MEMORY SCOOP
It is a kind of machinery that enables the user to convert memories into visuals. So the machine scans the brain waves and present memories as holograms. However, it sounds completely unrealistic. Not because it is far-fetched but because memories are ever-changing.
2. POSSIBLE: CLEAR PASTA
It is a food developed in 2104 in the anime that can make the consumer feel relaxed. However, the pasta was known to have illegal ingredients. So it’s very possible this might be some kind of drug in real life.
1. IMPOSSIBLE: THE DOMINATOR
Well, Dominator is the main weapon of the Japenese police force in Psycho-Pass. This gun is incapable of identifying its owner. However, it can easily assess the brain waves of the person it pointed to. So, this is where things get messy. While identifying guns can be invented, reading the brain sounds childish
