CS300K Counter Surveillance Camera Spots Snipers, Peeping Toms, And Those Who Don’t Know It’s Impolite To Stare

Current techniques for locating snipers (besides a well-trained pair of eyes) involve sophisticated microphone setups, which are essentially useless until the sniper fires a shot, at which point it could be already too late. But the CS300K Counter Surveillance Camera, from a company called JETprotect, promises to spot sniper scopes, binoculars, cameras and even human eyeballs from hundreds of meters away using the ‘red-eye’ effect that’s wrecked so many photos over the years.

The CS300K uses an integrated “unique wavelength GigE Vision IP camera” in conjunction with a “numerically controlled Class IIIb laser illuminator” and special automatic surveillance software to monitor for threats around the clock, providing warnings when something is spotted. The initial applications for the technology will involve military and security duties where prying eyes or scopes are a serious threat, but I’m sure it will eventually trickle down to the consumer level so you can use your cellphone to monitor that creepy guy on the subway who’s been occasionally staring at you for the past 15 minutes.

    Cool technology. I really don't see how it would be useful for everyday consumers, though. :o)

    For those security conscious individuals, this could be a great buy. But for regular users, yeah, I don't think this is going to be useful in our day to day lives. :)

    Are you kidding? Make it into an iPhone app and all those paranoid people would buy it. I see a market of people who would by it. I hate creepy people on trains.
