Be careful what you say when eating that bag of chips.

For anyone that has seen "The Conversation", this brings it too an entire new level of paranoia.

I've worked with high frame cameras up to 10.000fps and I'm aware of all the doors it opened in science but this one is very interesting and unexpected.


MIT researchers can listen to your conversation by watching your potato chip bag - The Washington Post

If it vibrates.

I wonder if CONTROL took care of that.

I have noticed some windows have a small sticker looking thing on them with a wire attached. I once asked someone what it was and he said it was a vibration thing to make it impossible to get a read on the conversation from the vibrations of the glass. You need some type of laser device to do this, but apparently such things exist.

In theory you could be ten miles away as long as you had a direct line of sight at the window.

I wonder if you put a popcorn popper next to the window it would mask your conversations? If not then at least you would have popcorn to munch while you were being snooped on.

Idle is right

While serving my 18 month sentence to the Pentagon, all of our office windows had "window shakers" for just that purpose.
