Chinese authorities have begun deploying a new surveillance tool designed to identify people by how they walk, or the shapes of their body. Adding to the already staggering number of surveillance cameras — many of which use bleeding edge optics and facial recognition technologies — China is already using the tool on the streets in its two largest cities, Beijing and Shanghai. It, again, raises concern among privacy advocates about how far the government is willing to go to keep tabs on its citizens.
Huang Yongzhen, CEO of Watrix, the company that designed the system, says it can identify people from up to 50 meters (165 feet), even when their back is turned or their face is covered.

How long b4 people start buying high powered lasers and burning out CCTV's/surveillance camera's? I know the green lasers do a decent job and the blu-ray burner lasers are even better and many of them can be boosted in power as long as a decent heat sink is used, the power level can be jacked up to the point where the camera is destroyed.
