Think You Can Hide in a Large Crowd? Not Anymore…

Ever wonder how they found the Boston bombers in just a few days?
This may help you to understand what the government is looking at.
This photo was taken in Canada and shows about 700,000 people.

Pick on a small part of the  crowd click a couple of times — wait —
click a few more times and see how clear each individual face will  become clearer each time. Or use the wheel on your mouse.

This picture was taken with a 70,000 x 30,000 pixel camera  (2100 Megapixels).

These cameras are not sold to the public and are being installed in strategic locations. The camera can identify a face among a multitude of people. Place your computer’s cursor in the mass of people and double-click a couple times.

Not so easy to hide in a crowd anymore.

  1. "These cameras are not sold to the public..." Or anyone else! 2100 MP camera? I don`t think so: " It is made up of 216 photos (12 across by 18 down) stitched together, taken over a 15-minute span, and is not supposed to represent a single moment in time" (from the caption at the link).
    Not saying it isn't a cool photo just that it is an example of stitching software rather than sinister surveillance hardware.

    Dave.
