With a recent spike in missing teenage boys throughout southwest New Mexico, the innovative creation team of the Applied Technology Department has unveiled a new electrical messaging system to track human activity.
A grant from the Department of Energy allowed for the purchase of 100-Watt bulbs to be installed across more than one million acres in the Gila National Forest. WNMU partnered with Hawkins Power and Light to develop a complex behavioral tracking system initiated by human voice.
“We found that the most effective ways to find missing relatives are through the frantic screams of traumatized mothers,” said Dr. Martin Brenner, senior research scientist and Director of Hawkins National Laboratory.
The secretive laboratory is located in an undisclosed location in the Gila National Forest.
A selected group of grieving mothers of missing children volunteered during the initial phases of the project, screaming at different decimals and distances from the last point of contact for the children.
Single mother Joyce Byers was the first to volunteer. Her 12-year-old son Will vanished mysteriously while visiting New Mexico from their hometown of Hawkins, Indiana.
“Everything seems upside down at this point,” said Byers. “I know he can hear me and this new electrical system is the best hope we can to find him.”
WNMU professors are being tight-lipped about the exact science used to communicate with the lost children at this point.
