Depending on what type of program you’ve designed for your security system, any one of a number of actions can be programmed: An alarm can sound, lights can start flashing, or your computer can automatically dial law enforcement authorities, via modem, alerting them to the break-in.

Thank god, not many clubs I go to on a regular basis have installed retina scans or finger-print technology yet, but having been to all sorts of weird and wonderful nights around the country in a professional capacity, I can tell you – They Are Coming. Yes, soon, getting into anywhere bigger than a Yates’s Wine Bar is basically going to be like boarding Air Force One. This is problematic for a number of reasons. Firstly because it’s something that should be in an episode of Farscape and not a British nightclub. Secondly, because it creates massive queues. And thirdly, because it’s fucking disgusting. Just imagine getting refused entrance to a club because you just got caught screwing in a toilet at another place down the road. What about when police start telling clubs that they can’t let in anyone who’s got a previous drugs rap? It’ll be a right laugh.

"The EyeSee looks ordinary enough on the outside, with its slender polystyrene frame, blank face and improbable pose. Inside, it’s no dummy. A camera embedded in one eye feeds data into facial-recognition software like that used by police. It logs the age, gender, and race of passers-by.”

The Radio Nurse (and Guardian Ear) designed by Isamu Noguchi for Zenith Radio was the first baby monitor - released in 1937.
"Noguchi’s design manages to be both abstract and figurative at the same time. It looks like a faceless bust with the suggestion of a nurse’s cap in back, but also like an Art-Deco radio. It represented his exploration of the the notion of the interchangeability of biological and machine forms, and well as his concept of everyday objects as sculpture. Also, the speaker grille is reminiscent of the Japanese Kendo mask, and is typical of Noguchi’s combination of Eastern and Western forms."
