My theory is folks,in the not too distant future,TPTB will not need webcams to spy on daily innocent lives of (most of)the masses.
They will be able to see through our eyes.
Sounds mental?
Sure it does,but I never thought I would be alive by the time technology existed to record images from a human brain(a thought,or memory)and yet that tech is already at its beggining stages today.And looking scary in terms of its future applications IMO.
Nor did I think I would see the day when one mind can control a seperate,sedated body but that is possible today.
www.bbc.co.uk...
If that is possible,then one day it will be possible to tap into your optic nerve,wirelessly and from distance,to see what you are seeing.

I realize this sounds like crazy talk,but I tell you-this will become a reality if we continue down the twisted path we are on.

Our ancestors must be turning in their graves to see the slow motion dystopian train wreck that we must seem to them to be.

I can't imagine anyone being all that interested in seeing pictures of my junk.

Except maybe Ripley's!

I wonder if all the people lining up to buy Google Glass realize they're buying a device through which the government will be constantly watching. Each Google Glass member is literally going to be a roving eye of the surveillance state, and they're going to be paying for the "privilege."

It's exactly like the Palantír of Orthanc from LotR. You can see through it to gain information, but Sauron is always looking through it to see you.

They should just be honest and call them NSA goggles.
Google glass is just the precursor to my above post,where you get your optic nerve hacked,wifi style,without consent of course.

my understanding is that it is all right to have threads discussing the same subject in different forums.
i could be wrong, if so sorry.

That is partially correct. BAN (Breaking Alternative News) is a special exception to the duplicate thread/topic rule on ATS. The other occurence of this topic is outside of BAN, so everything is kosher.

You know what...i reckon those poor sods tasked with skimming through these captures are probably going to be scarred for life.

They'll probably never have the stomach for a normal sex life again...can you imagine being forced to watch millions of people, tossing off for 8 hours a day, every day?! That's bound to have an effect on sanity, it has to.

you know what my solution for web cam and mic would be if i had them.

place a picture of a anus in front of the cam, and a recording of continuous fart noises next mic.

oh noes! you wont get all the stars and flags! what was the point of your post? discuss the topic man.

this sort of thing is starting to get absurd, but i think the more absurd thing is people are not REACTING. the government have got what they wanted, they can tell us ANYTHING now and the masses are so de-sensitized to it they keep getting away with it. we need to take a leaf out of the arabs / eastern countries playbook here and actually step up and do something.

If any of them were under 18 and getting their bits out the person viewing them could be technically done for viewing CP as its illegal to have a sexual imagine of anyone under 18 with the only exception being people 16-18 who are in a serious relationship/married


That happened in Massuchusetts. A school made a bulk purchase of Apple laptops for their students. The security settings of these laptops were setup so that webcam images were taken and send to a central server. Teachers discovered the directory on the server and found it entertaining to see what their students were doing out of school. Then they forgot about this "secret" and started reprimanding students for their behavior at home, and that blew the WebcamGate case wide open:

en.wikipedia.org...

"The lawsuit was filed after 15-year-old high school sophomore Blake Robbins was disciplined at school, for his behavior in his home."

" In one widely published photo, the school had photographed Robbins in his bed."

"In July 2010, another student, Jalil Hasan, filed a parallel second suit. It related to 1,000+ images that the school snapped surreptitiously via his computer over a two-month period, including shots of him in his bedroom."

it doesn't say any arrest where made. And with that many images I'm sure they found some incriminating evidence. Really no big deal though, they listen to your phone calls and you still use phones.....


Are you suggesting that it's "really no big deal" the government is violating the law and the Constitution to invade your home and spy on your every move? Yeah?

My friend, if you came home from work or school to find a thief rooting through all your belongings, you would freak the # out. But that's what the government is doing EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Realign your perspective, because it doesn't compute.


It doesn't bother me at all...

That's certainly your choice.

And it's our choice to keep giving a damn. Don't worry, we'll keep fighting to preserve your God-given freedoms... even if you can't be bothered.

My laptop, annoyingly, has a webcam built in. I despise it, it feels like a little eye constantly staring at me. I felt like maybe I was acting paranoid when I put a little square of duct tape over it. Well, as it turns out, maybe not.

Duct tape has a million and one uses.

i have cigarette foil over my laptop and desktop monitor cameras have for a long time now. the reason is simple, i noticed that the microphone kept "turning on", i would make sure i had it turned off and set all levels to 0, yet after awhile i would notice sound from my typing or if something hit the case, and would increase in volume over time. when i would check, the mike was still set to "turned off", but that the "sound levels" had moved up, which should not a) be able to happen on it's own, and b) if it's turned off why does it still have power no mater what the "levels" are set at. this ticked me off but i thought it must be a glitch in the system. but i took the precaution of blocking the camera anyway, since i figured if the mic was doing it how about the camera. i was glad i did when i purchased a new laptop, from a different company, with the new operating system, and sure enough after awhile the SAME THING started to happen. now i am even MORE glad i took that precaution.

i have been tempted to take my lap tops and computer monitor apart and install my OWN solid state switches on the wires for the cameras and mic. i would suspect though that when going through security at airports it would cause me problems since they normally make you take them out and the switches would be obvious. might still do it with my desktop monitor tho.

setting on flash player my have something to do with it.
go to control panel and click flash player icon, camara and mic , check block all sites from using camara and mic.
then with a player open right click and chose, the second tab, which should be privacy settings, check deny.

I remember being laughed at when I got my first laptop with a built-in camera and promptly slapped a piece of electrical tape over it. I got called all sorts of snarky names when I told the laughing folks that it could be turned on remotely. They asked if I had left my tinfoil hat at home.

Teeeheeehee! (That's the sound of me having the last snarky snicker. :hey


And just last night I heard that Google is buying up thermostat manufacturers to build their "smart thermostats"---giving them complete knowledge of what's going on in your castle.
