In “it’s not paranoia if they really are spying on you” news, Cambridge Consultants has unveiled a portable radar system in a backpack. Seriously.
Cambridge Consultant’s Prism 200c is an ultra-wideband radar system that’s specifically designed to be hidden in a backpack. The idea is that you can just lean casually against a wall, frontin’ a ‘tude that in no way says “I’m secretly scanning this entire building right now.” To help keep things on the d/l, the backpack radar sends images directly to a laptop or smartphone, so you can just look like you’re playing Angry Birds instead of conducting surveillance.
The system can see through wood, bricks, and even concrete. It’s also capable of picking out individual people, and will display their locations and movements. The idea is that before law enforcement or the military busts someone’s door down, they’ll know exactly how many people are behind that door and where they are.
Ostensibly this is for, say, military usage … but you know how it is. One gets rented out for an episode ofBurn Notice, next thing you know Cousin Sal has one for raiding a rival’s territory … TMI, people.
Plus … won’t the guy wearing it get irradiated? Just saying …
