From the Wiki article: "The concept of the design is to allow an observer to observe (-opticon) all (pan-) prisoners without the incarcerated being able to tell whether they are being watched."

Employee? Prisoner? Who's to say?

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a rigged demo.

Working...
