"Surveillance Detecting" Armor

An artist has created what he's calling the "surveillance spaulding", a small piece of "armor" with an IR detector in it designed to detect surveillance cameras. Which obviously will only work if the camera: A.) Has an IR illuminator, and B.) it's turned on, and C.) it's in the right wavelength. When it detects IR, it makes the wearer's shoulder twitch via small electrical shocks.

I get that this is a design project and not a serious product, but it ranks as one of the silliest things I've ever seen related to surveillance.


So, in other words, it's mostly a gimmick from an artist with a poor understanding of technology? Makes me want to put up more IR illuminators in various places.

"When it detects IR, it makes the wearer's shoulder twitch via small electrical shocks."

What does it do when it detects a high power IR laser?

UK surveillance paranoia for the win!

i hope he also is wearing face rec camoflague...
