These guys made their own, with a projector, a screen, an infrared pen, a Wiimote, and the Wiimote Whiteboard program. Pretty cool results. Seems like a great market opportunity for someone to package it up in a self-contained plug-and-play unit (although you have the "big videoconference touchscreens" as an upper limit on your price point):
With most surveillance footage it's pretty easy to spot what's going to happen next: the customer will pay for their items, receive change, and walk out of the store.
Unless you're watching it on the internet. Then, a car will drive into the storefront or a botched hold-up will occur.

As tablets and computer-phones flood the market, the headlines read:
"The Personal Computer is Dying." But they are only half true: an
artifact of the PC is dying, but the essence of the PC revolution is
closer to realization than ever before, while also being closer to loss than ever before.

cylonlover writes "When we think of remote control cars, we generally think of scaled-down vehicles that can easily get caught up underfoot. Not so Chinese automaker BYD, which has upsized the remote control car with the release of its Su Rui model in China. The mid-size family saloon that seats five includes Remote Driving Control technology that allows the driver to get out of the car and drive it using the included remote control 'key.'"
My partner got caught by one of these bill collector scumbags. They just troll through credit histories and call folks with delinquent balances and browbeat them into giving them a debit card or checking account number to "settle" it. Any amount of verification will show that they have nothing to do with the debts they're trying to collect (which we, thankfully, did). Very frightening experience.
Oh, so it's just the slippery slope fallacy: "seizure of internet domains now = legislators will do anything for political leverage at the expense of US customers and suppliers"
Yes, SOPA is misguided. It does not mean the US Congress has a death wish for our country, but rather they are bumbling, and largely paid-for, fools.
The real problem, as I see it, is the "accusation = guilt" and extra-judicial enforcement methods of these laws. It just floors me that our congressmen, sworn to uphold the constitution, thinks that laws where all you have to do is file some paperwork and "poof" the website gets blocked without having to present compelling-enough evidence to a judge under penalty of perjury (and with oppposing counsel's arguments) for him or her to issue an injunction to block the DNS entry. It shows they have absolutely no respect for the Constitution or even knows what "rule of law" means.
