Creepy talking (and listening) surveillance cameras are here5/15/2012
Tricked out street lights incorporating "homeland security applications" that can bark orders at passers-by are being installed in major U.S cities. While this could make your next excursion into the city streets much more exciting, critics are warning the "IntelliStreets system" is a Big Brother step too far. The system includes a variety of cameras and sensors, and perhaps more worryingly, can record conversations. IntelliStreets connects via Wi-Fi and is currently being rolled out in Detroit, Chicago and Pittsburgh, with manufacturers saying it's also suitable for "retail malls, sports venues, on college campuses, and in new construction."
What do you think of these cameras?
