"Big Brother is watching!"
Can you hide in a crowd from the government? This picture was taken with a 70,000 x 30,000 pixel camera (2100 Mega Pixels.) These cameras are not sold to the public and are being installed in strategic locations. The camera can identify a face among a multitude of people. Place your computer's cursor (a hand) in the mass of people and double-click a couple times. Scary sharp! George Orwell must be smiling somewhere out there. http://www.gigapixel.com/mobile/?id=79995
