Classic scaremongering from Infowars.
If you read the actual patent, it states that it's only building on existing technology that people use, for example smart TV's with gesture control or Microsoft's Kinect. A lot of the technology it uses is similar to Kinect in the way it recognizes people. Plus, just because it's patented, doesn't mean they're planning on using it. With smart TV's getting cheaper and cheaper it's no surprise that someone took the initiative to patent the method.
Edit* Didn't see you'd posted the patent link.

Again, BD.. I have to agree with you my Belfast Laddy...
But, I guess I have to start believing....
I am sooooo against this. It makes me sick.
It seems straight forward with no shame. But, what really gets me is that they are asking consumers to actually pay to lose their privacy?
Americans buying the product would not only be literally inviting big brother to come into their homes, but asking him to walk about inside it with them.
Who in their right mind would pay for these boxes.
I can't wait to hear from someone who would...MY TAKE ON THE Z10... I DON'T KNOW HOW, OR WHY, BUT IT WORKS!!!

Re: The end of privacy, is this taking it too far?
And no I wouldn't want such a product in my life.

Wow, the comments after that article is like paranoia in print lol. All those people sound like they're one brick short of a load.
Better move up into the mountains and live in some caves people, because that's the only way you'll be safe from prying eyes."Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all." -Sam Ewing

Take motorcycles for example, somebody decided in Europe a few years ago that all motorcycles should have the headlights on at all times............so they took away the button to turn it off even if there's no law to do so.

Targeted ads are nothing new, Smart TV's with gesture and facial recognition are nothing new. The two will inevitably meet and ads like that will only work for online content.
