Exclamation Beware the Talking Lamp Posts!

Many cities in the US are installing new high tech lamposts with cameras and cellphone technology to allow communication between Big Brother and You!

Isn't that exciting?

These lamposts will bark commands at people on the street. They can issue alerts, capture images, listen in on conversations, zoom in and read text messages and linked up with databases can probably identify people.

Check out the video!


As we first reported last year, high tech street lights with “homeland security applications” are now being installed in major U.S. cities.
The street lights also have loudspeakers that can give audible warnings to individuals, mimicking the talking surveillance cameras in the UK that shout out orders through microphones telling people to pick up litter or leave the area.
A recent press release put out by Amerlux announces the company’s partnership with Illuminating Concepts to further advance the rollout of ‘Intellistreets’. The announcement confirms that the street lights will have a number of “homeland security features” including a loudspeaker system that will be used to “engage captive audiences”.
Love the last line..."engage captive audiences".

Columbus has some like that also. I don't think you even need to touch the lamp post. A kid was killed last year just being on the bridge.

This is going to be a colossal waste of resources. People are just going to smash them.
