Once again, Big Brother is on the march. This time with cameras and
sensors that are connected by wireless internet, enabling more and more
areas to be monitored without having to run clumsy wires and cables all
over the place.

If there’s power available, ten you can put these sensors and cameras
in. For that matter, it would be a good idea to remember that batteries
ain’t what they used to be, now they’re rechargeable and last a lot
longer.

Wireless
Sensors Extend Internet’s Reach

LOS ANGELES (AP) – To the untrained eye, the sleek, airy building
constructed atop a decommissioned nuclear reactor at the University of
California, Los Angeles could pass for high-tech office space.

A closer inspection of the glass-and-steel facade reveals dozens of
miniature, low-resolution cameras and sensors. They’re wirelessly
linked to computers throughout the 6,000-square-foot space, keeping
tabs on traffic flow in public areas and monitoring temperature,
humidity and acoustics.
