Started about a year ago. They are turned on when the shift starts and can't be turned off until the shift has ended.
Mounted on a hat above the right ear and they have sound.
Indiana, by the way.
This is absolutely needed. The powers that be forget far too often that they themselves are human and not only make mistakes but are corruptible as well. Kudos to your locals for doing this!
Of course this wouldn't stop a sudden application of silly putty on the lense and/or microphone. The mic would be the better choice there - "I'm sorry sir but we seemed to have had audio transmission issues during that incident."
I guess what I'm saying is, get an stm32. Or msp430 if you're ok writing in windows only.
And MPS430 actually has support in Linux now. Google for "mps430 linux" and you'll find a host of options. One of those is a port of the Arduino IDE called Energia. Though that one is not ready completely yet. (I had trouble getting it to run on Mint13.)
Regardless the TI Launchpad stuff is supported well enough outside of Windows.
No. You can make a zipgun out of a ball point pen. Everyone has the ability to make a weapon; most people simply don't have the need, desire, or psychosis to do so.... and admittedly, many don't have the imagination for it either.
Technically a zipgun is made from plumbing parts: http://www.scribd.com/doc/23323372/Zipguns-Pipe-Guns-Silencers
But you're right about the imagination.
It happens enough in the US that prosecutors are willing to do unethical and sometimes illegal things to get their conviction.
Sad but all too true.

1984 and/ or Soylent Green. The movie was so depressing. Would never bother to read the book. Was there an actual novel ?
"Make Room! Make Room!" by Harry Harrison.
Heh, I can see the ads now: "You wouldn't steal a galactic assault cruiser . .
Dammit! Now I want the Thingiverse files for a galactic assault cruiser!
