Maybe one or two of those laureates could work on a solution to our incarceration rate (or our healthcare mess, or the direction of our tax incentives, or...).

That's a good idea.

Science fiction films have depicted a significant number of innovative restraint devices allowing convicted criminals some version of freedom of movement during their sentences without having to house, feed, and care for them in an institutional environment.

Electronic bracelets, leg cuffs, collars, etc., with the ability to constantly monitor and report a criminal's whereabouts and/or render an electric shock if the convict wanders outside his or her alloted geographic area.

It sounds silly, of course, but one imagines that such systems might be preferable to a convicted criminal if given a choice between a constant monitor and physical incarceration.

Just sayin'
