Wiki:Flash LED used in phones[edit]
High-current flash LEDs are used as flash sources in camera phones, although they are not yet at the power levels to equal xenon flash devices (that are rarely used in phones) in still cameras. The major advantages of LEDs over xenon include low voltage operation, higher efficiency, and extreme miniaturization. The LED flash can also be used for illumination of video recordings or as an autofocus assist lamp in low-light conditions.

Who’s spying on your Wii?

Panoptic (tinted) cameras:



Take notice of the tint to conceal the camera:


Toilet (auto-flush) censor:


The following sensors show that, all that is needed is a sensor, a fraction of the size as seen above.




So, why such a big “sensor”? Or is it more than just a sensor?

    A timestamped image from the camera, released by police, shows an unknown man caught his own image on the camera on Oct. 10, 2015. That’s according to a release from the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office.

    The camera was found hidden in a portable bathroom at Wiard’s Orchards and Country Fair, 5565 Merritt Road in Ypsilanti Township, police said.

    Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Keith Flores said the camera was found in coffee cup in the bathroom and police believe it was purposely placed to catch images of other people. However, the camera was found in October 2015 before anyone else, other than the individual pictured, was photographed.

    Is Your Refrigerator A National Security Risk?

    September 12, 2017 6:10 PM

    WASHINGTON (CBS4) – The federal government is worried some refrigerators and coffee pots could pose a national security risk, and it’s taking action.

    Colorado’s U.S. Senator Cory Gardner among a bi-partisan group of senators who are sponsoring legislation to secure the so-called Internet of Things – everyday devices that are embedded with computer chips and sensors.

    Gardner says those devices can be used as weapons of mass disruption.

    “The federal government orders billions of dollars worth of Internet of Things devices each and every year,” says Gardner. “These are things that can be hacked into. You can try to control systems, instruments with them. You can certainly read what people are doing and maybe even eavesdrop on a conversation people are having.”

    Just last year baby monitors and webcams were used in a cyberattack that took down major websites like Twitter, Spotify and PayPal.

    The devices serve as portals to networks.

    As Chair of the Senate Cybersecurity Caucus, Gardner is sponsoring a bill that would require any internet-connected device purchased by the government meet basic security standards.

    “Things like firewalling off information, requiring patchable and securable devices, making sure that you don’t have a hardcoded password from a factory that someone can have access to.”

    He says many of the devices are imported and have little to no security making them highly vulnerable gateways into government systems that can be exploited by criminals and other countries.

    “We’re facing kind of a brave new world when it comes to these things and we need to be prepared from a policy standpoint to address it. Everything around us is going to have to be looked at from a security perspective and what we are doing as country to advance innovation while make sure we are safeguarding people.”

    The Internet of Things includes about 15 billion devices, from thermostats to appliances, but it could grow to 50 billion over the next few years.

    While the legislation only applies to devices sold to the government, Gardner is hopeful the changes will carry over to those sold in the private sector.

    Police: Second camera found in Starbucks bathroom
    – For the second time, a hidden camera was found inside a Starbucks bathroom at the same Alpharetta location.

    Around 11:30 Thursday morning, Alpharetta Police said an employee found the recording device at the business on Old Milton Parkway.

    This is the second time in less than a month that a hidden camera was discovered there, also tucked underneath a baby changing station.

    “We’re not sure if it’s the person, or if it’s a copycat,” said Officer Howard Miller with Alpharetta Police. Officers went door to door to other businesses at the strip mall and went into the bathrooms, in case the creeper placed more devices in public restrooms.

    “[We’re trying to] figure out if it’s safe for us here too,” said a worker at the nearby nail salon, as businesses worry where the creeper could strike next.

    Police cannot say how long the camera had been there, or how many people were captured on video. Investigators seized the video and are scouring it for digital forensic information to find the perpetrators of both hidden cameras.

    The first hidden camera was discovered April 17 by a Starbucks customer. Police seized the recording device and found possibly up to ten men and women were captured on video.

    Starbucks corporate officials released the following statement: “Since the original incident, we’ve increased [the] rate of bathroom checks to prevent any foul play. Our partners (employees) moved swiftly once they found the device and called law enforcement.”

    Police said the perpetrator would face felony charges of invasion of privacy.
