CCTV for Me!

This right here is a project that has directly to do with closed-circuit television, a system also known as CCTV. These sort of cameras are different from, say, broadcast news cameras because CCTV cameras are meant to only transmit to one spot. CCTV cameras are only supposed to be watched by one person, or one group. What this project in this post, “The Observer,” consists of is a personal viewer for everyday citizens allowing them access to any CCTV camera in the country.

The Observer’s concept mockup is simple, made of sheet steel and aluminum, but the implications are great. As designer Lee Murray notes, the world would be a whole new place if security was (once again) everybody’s business. Interested in mystery, surveillance, and spying, through this project’s exploration phase Murray began to wonder what would happen if a large number of people saw a crime, each of them in a different position, each feeling a different moral obligation to do something about it?

What if The Observer were turned into a game, where rewards were given to the first person to report crimes to the police?

What a wild world it would become.

    good idea, but i think criminals will have more help with it than responsible citizens.

  • What a strange idea! I know a similar concept, Internet Eyes, is actually a business now – allowing the public to monitor CCTV from their homes. But I don’t think the idea will ever really catch on, as most people don’t want others invading their privacy. I think CCTV monitoring is best left to the professionals.

  • You can go to their websites and look for a listing for the doctors you are considering.

    Just like other facilities, medical facilities at Salt
    Lake City are quite advance and it has been serving different needs of the patients for the past
    many years. First decide on what color you want your bathroom to be and add two shades
    of the same color, one lighter and one darker (or one totally different but matching color) for accents.

  • With just few dollars, you can achieve a golden-bronze tan and also manage to
    look gorgeous and hot. Surgical treatment for Gynecomastia is considered the fastest and most effective way
    to reshape the male breast. There is no
    reason to be self-conscious about your body
    in front of the woman, or man, who is tanning you.
