Big Brother Sounds So Much Cuter With The Voice Of A Local School Kid
from the child-abuse dept
Security cameras are just about everywhere, and it’s pretty well known that you shouldn’t expect much privacy in any public space. Still, it was a bit surprising last year to find out that officials in the UK were experimenting with security cameras that would also scold people, if it spotted them littering or some other form of public nuisance. Apparently, however, the program has been a success, and there are plans to use these scolding surveillance cameras in 20 additional areas throughout England. However, to make the systems seem more friendly, they’re talking about holding contests for local school children to become the “voice” of the surveillance cameras. Apparently, if you make it into a game, you can hope that kids will accept the concept of “Big Brother” at a young age.
