Chicago Loop,
http://www.open-loop.org/public_html/surve...e_html/map.html

"Open-Loop.org is a collective that documents the video surveillance in Chicago’s downtown area, commonly known as the Loop. Our efforts reveal that an enormous percentage of public space in downtown Chicago is continuously monitored by surveillance devices. Whether operated by government or private entities, these devices establish a constant watch on the activities taking place in much of the Loop."

Watch the security freak out when he notices he's being watched with cameras.

Yes.

I wonder what they would have told the cops if they'd called them?

I particularly like his "maybecam" page,  found from that link.  :-)

There was another thread about this sort of thing earlier on in here,  and some link or other led me to a site where the guy was talking about blinding surveillance cameras with a laser pointer.  It's my understanding that they don't need visible light,  most of them,  that infrared will do nicely...

Now picture a hatband,  or some other article of clothing which is *studded* with infrared LEDs.  You can typically salvage these from dead floppy drives,  where they're used as index sensors, write protect and media type sensors,  etc. if you get ones where the latter two functions aren't done with mechanical switches.

Or better yet,  get some actual IR laser diodes -- easily salvageable from dead cdrom drives,  and it wouldn't take all that much to drive them.

This sort of a setup would have the wonderful effect of focusing *all* of "security's" attention on the wearer,  leaving others to be ignored in the process...

Cheap,  free parts,  wearable,  and pokey!

yeah, I posted that link about blinding cameras, and I'll put it up on my board too.  Good thinkin'!

Good Day
