    Default Smart Homes: Expanded Role for Alexa

    Alexa will now listen for the cry of a baby and turn lights off without being asked.

    https://www.cnet.com/news/every-new-...sept-24-event/

    What's coming in future versions?

    "Late night movement indicates insomnia, Alexa has entered it in your medical records!"

    "Sustained shouting indicates possible domestic violence, Alexa has entered it in your police record!"

    "Possible gun shot not associated with the TV show you're watching, Alexa has called 911!"

    "Critical comment regarding government mandate, Alexa has registered it with the FBI!"

    Here we go to fool IR security cameras >


    I can't remember where I saw something about a printing pattern for t-shirts that confuses surveillance system cameras, pretty cool, but not sure if it still technically working, I mean the patterns, my guess it is a game of Tom & Jerry, every time someone crack the system they come up with some upgrades!

    Okay, here is the link > https://ahprojects.com/hyperface/

    Quote "HAPPY BIRTHDAY GEORGE ORWELL, HERE'S YOUR SURVEILLANCE SOCIETY
    Subverting CCTV with party hats

    By Aaron Souppouris Jul 4, 2013, 9:10am EDT

    To celebrate what would've been George Orwell's 110th birthday, two Dutch artists sought inspiration from perhaps his most famous novel, 1984. The artists took to the streets of the Dutch city of Utrecht to put party hats on CCTV cameras in an attempt to draw attention to the culture of surveillance in modern cities. If we only looked above the stores and billboards that line our streets, say Front404, the artists behind the stunt, we'd realize how many cameras are above us."
