We are usual to think that a voice changer is a toy to make prank phone calls and have fun with friends. But the device has potentials much more higher and in many cases it has been of help to get out of difficult situations.

Take, for example, the story told by Elena, a 81-year old lady, who lives alone in her house. For about two months was haunted by phone calls from spiteful people intent to break into her apartment after verifying that the lady was always alone.  But Elena’s sons haven’t had afraid by the threats and have connected a voice changer to the phone. In this way, the voice of the lady who answered to the phone appeared, on the other side of the receiver, a clearly masculine voice. The result? The calls have ended in about a week. But Elena doesn’t renounce more to her voice changer.

Even more alarming is Rosaria’s story, 33-year old, stalked by her ex-husband. To ease the burden of continuous calls, she has pretended to be a man, a new partner, installing a voice changer on her cell phone and starting fake interferences during the call, again through the same device.

And there would be many other cases reported by Endoacustica Europe‘s customers after the introduction of powerful voice transformer provided by the company. Charles, who has freed himself of his mother-in-law with fake baby crying, Lucy, who spoke like a man to his employer too confidential and James that he pretended the sensual lover of himself to retake Miriam. And he succeeded!

Directional microphones as big as a pin. Micro cameras and micro bugs hidden in eyeglasses or sunglasses, common pens, keys and key rings, buttons, shirts, pillows and stuffed animals. In short, everywhere. Batteries that last for hours and turn on  from a distance or turn on/off automatically when they receive a noise. The market for  bugs and their derivatives is constantly evolving and the offer is really wide. Bargain prices and low cost solutions for products which are often throwaway. The key isn’t spending a fortune, but only knowing how to evaluate an offer. You know that it’s really difficult to have a rechargeable GSM bug, at unlimited distance, at 19.90€. But the same will be sold by companies able to guarantee it for life, spending a couple of hundred euro. And the investment is done.

If you want exaggerate, at 499 euros you can buy a software able to intercept and transfer every phone conversation and even text message. And there’s no need to be friends with CIA agents: it’s enough a visit on the site www.endoacustica.com, leader company in the field, that also sells online all type of gadgets for investigators more or less professional, from jealous husband to more experienced  agent. And the power supply is no longer a problem, just think of the bugs that find their natural habitat within the electrical outlets.

The truth is that, as many have commented, there isn’t a place not suitable to place a bug. And above all, in every corner of the planet you can pick up useful informations. A meeting room, the study or the home of a bureaucrat or a politician, but also a suspect enterprise. The operating modes are truly endless.

The reality is often much easier than it looks. Just use the right tools.

Technology applied to the animals at the Las Vegas technology fair

For someone are like children, for others are even more important. And the technology is riding the moment. We’re talking about animals. Domestic, beatiful and always faithful. From years, there are valid locators on the market that prevent the loss of the precious companions. These make possible to know the animal position and above all to be alerted if it moves away from a fixed perimeter. These tools are used by livestock farmers as well as by simple dogs or cats owners.

But that’s not all. At the Consumer Electronics Show, the electronics fair in Las Vegas, many exhibitors thought to the four-legged friends. It would seem that our dog will soon boast of being technologically advanced, just as the owner, with smartphones and smart bracelets.

One of the technologies that most impressed the visitors of the CES is FitBark. It’s a system for tracking the physical activity of the dog. It works thanks to a small plastic shell shaped bone, applicable to the collar, which encloses inside sensors to record each movement. It transmits via Bluetooth through a smartphone application.

The software, developed in collaboration with veterinaries, encloses the frames of reference divided by race to see if the animal performs the correct daily physical activity, monitored through challenges and scores to reach. The application is compatible with some fitness bracelets for men and allows you to perform human-animal challenges. You can also post pictures and messages, manage a diary to share on Facebook or Twitter. Throught a Wifi unit, shaped dog-house, sold separately, you can monitor the activity of your dog even remotely. If you’re out, for example, you can monitor the animal or control if your dog-sitter is working fine.

In this regard, they are already in use monitoring tools such as micro cameras or surveillance video cameras that monitor 24h-24h animals, people and environments. And Petzila, another American startup, has bring a normal camera at the show, claiming to have designed it especially for animals just like “monitor on the kids”.  In addition it’s possible to talk to the puppy through the microphone, and also give its a cookie via the built-in dispenser, pressing a button on your smartphone.

In short, the “genius” of the technology in Las Vegas have seized the opportunity dedicating the existing and widely experienced technology to the pets. While the “innovations” looking for a space in the market, there are those who relies on technologies tested in the security and surveillance field that not have the shape of a bone, but they are certainly very reliable.

The wig with camera and GPS sensor

An idea in the wearable technology field born of two Japanese inventors, Hiroaki Tobita and Takuya Kuzi, of the Sony Computer Science Laboratories. It’s a SmartWig. The two engineers have developed a distinctive headdress with a dual functionality. While it’s able to hide any baldness, its also and above all has a camera, a navigation system and sensors that monitor the physiological values​​.

The wig is able to communicate wirelessly with a mobile device and it’s equipped with camera, a laser pointer and a GPS sensor; a real surveillance system to put in the head. From a long time the “big names” of the technology are searching for as much as wearable devices; just think to spy glasses, necklaces and watches equipped with tiny camera and bracelets with GPS sensors.

The first SmartWig model serves as a navigation system thanks to a GPS sensor. The gadget indicates the path through the micro-vibrations in the concerned part of the skull: a little shake on the right side indicates the direction to the right, for example. In this sense, the tool could also be useful to blind people so that they would receive directions while walking. The second model, however, is equipped with a laser pointer and can slide your PowerPoint simply by orienting the head from one side to another. Finally, the third prototype of the smart-wig: replace the thermometers and pressure gauges, and with a simple click, it monitors brain waves, stores sounds and images files and if necessary, the wearer can recover them.

Great application might have in the surveillance and security field. No one would notice a system hidden under the hair. We don’t known if the wig will never be launched. The SmartWig could be a real revolution in the wearable technologies area.

Even the stones spy on us

In addition to the telephone wiretapping and PC monitor tools, now also came the micro bugs hidden in the stones. As we know, the bugs can be hidden almost anywhere, but this new frontier of surveillance is rather new.

In this way we can be monitored even if we don’t use the phone, or if we don’t surf the internet. The stones are designed by Lockheed Martin, which produces the F-35 fighters and helicopters used by U.S. President, Barack Obama. It’s an hidden software powered through wireless sensors, able to provide a discrete and continuous monitoring in a unit so small that may be contained in a stone or in the rocks. This “stone” is equipped with some tiny sensors, able to switch on at the passage of a person, and send a signal to a drone or a camera that is located nearby.

Hidden in fake rocks or even buried, these micro bugs of the SPAN system (Self-Powered Ad-hoc Network) operate as real “overseers” that detect and transmit a signal of our presence to the nearest control center, where can be lied in wait the person who wants to control us.

It’s hoped to employ the “spy stone” primarily in the military field or for espionage, surveillance, border protection, monitoring and security of bridges and pipelines. So another solution to watch without being seen through the use of professional bugs.

Sport technologies: Sky dreams micro cameras on the players

Spidercam, flycam, hypersensitive microphone and powerful cameras. The evolution of recording techniques applied to the football and sport in general seems to have no boundaries and continually acquires new words and ideas to improve production. The applications are renewed from year to year endless. There is no limit to the imagination and some product takes its cue directly from the superpowers. For now you can listen what athletes whisper or observe the smallest details of a goal through micro cameras placed on the goalposts.

“They’re all applications that result from the use of military money and research” recalls Angelo Carosi, Sky director, considered the Guru of the sport recordings; he follow from years the league from his cab in front of twenty monitor.

In recent years, the matches seem to have become almost marginal, the difference is the details. “Now a match has become a movie”, said the Sky director years ago.

Have not been found yet valid solutions for professional use of drones. In addition to special permission to fly over the heads of the spectators, the times seem still very limited (only 7-8 minutes of battery life) as well as the action range in the air that reaches 40 meters maximum, and there is also the dependence by weathering. At the moment the technology more “evolved” just seems to be about sound and HD video. Meanwhile, Sky, is stimulated by his talent Vialli who dreams about micro cameras on players. “On players is complicated – said the director – but about the referees is more feasible. The problem is the collaboration of stakeholders, which currently doesn’t exist”.

Amphibious ships, but also drones and helicopters with night visors. Technologically advanced devices to fight illegal immigration and prevent tragedies such as Lampedusa. In the operation of surveillance and rescue in the Mediterranean Sea, called “Mare Nostrum”, promoted by the Italian Government, will primarily be used unmanned aircraft and infrared optical tools.

Among others vehicles involved, two units of type frigate, each with a naval helicopter and two patrol type naval units, two helicopters EH101 of the Navy, boarded onto the San Marco or usable from Lampedusa, an aircraft type P180, equipped with infrared  optical instruments and radars for surface search. Also, a naval unit for logistic support, an Atlantique Air Force, based in Sigonella, a Predator (drone) used for maritime surveillance. And the coastal radar network and stations of AIS-automatic identification system of the Navy.

The drones allow to have maximum surveillance in the sea area affected by the migration routes. “Mare Nostrum” will be a military and humanitarian operation which provides for the strengthening of the surveillance devices and rescue in the seas in order to increase the level of safety of human life. The goal is to bring the emergency service nearest to the ports of departure of the ships of the sea, so as to avoid more victims.

As we know, we always want more from the smartphone: cameras increasely powerful, very high resolution for perfect images at your fingertips. But it’s still not enough. The new frontier of smartphone photography is the infrared sensor.
It’s called Quark, the first infrared camera for mobile devices, presented by the American company Flir, during the annual fair of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), dedicated to robot and drones.

The camera is similar to the models of drones, helmets and military viewers, but smaller. The first prototype consists of a cover for iPhone that follows the contour of the phone sticking out a few inches over the top, where is the lens. Because the device doesn’t transform the iPhone camera but has a lens about two inches wide. At the moment the quality is low, only 0.3 megapixel, the prototype aims to estimate the space that could have on the market.

In professional and military field, infrared photography is already used and popular. There are several systems able to observe through small everyday objects easily concealable. Also other sectors are taking advantages. In construction industry is used to detect water seepage or leakage from tubes, in the medical field for the diagnosis of breast cancer and in electronics to identify faults within an electrical circuit.
At the moment the experimental project can be accommodated only if the demand will be high allowing the reduction of costs, now too high. In addition, the very low quality doesn’t allow you to take great pictures to show. However, the infrared have taken the first steps.

Google announced the algorithm for preventing online crimes

The authorities use, as we known, a great number of micro-devices to monitor discreetly pc, smartphone and technological tools. Through them circulate every day millions and millions of informations. In this way, everything that is written is intercepted: email, sms and e-texts of all kinds. Now it seems that Mountain View want to patent an algorithm able to capture also what has not yet been written, that is, read the user’s mind while using Gmail, to block the spread of ideas in case of infringement of laws or if the system believes that the contents are dangerous.

It’s called Policy Violation Checker. An idea that could turn Google into a controller without respite, a kind of self-censorship digital unit for the thoughts in order to avoid that the user writes wrong contents. The Policy Violation Checker want catch the criminal before that he commits the crime. Indicting the thought made ​​up of words potentially dangerous, the algorithm would be ready to lock before the user presses the “Send” button. Protecting him from breaking laws or compromise relationships.

Many observers consider the Google idea a double edged sword. A tool that could certainly be very useful to curb the spread of dangerous digital contents. But also a system of assisted reasoning, a limit that should at least be optional. From Google says that the algorithm, once patented, not will adopted for its products. In the future, we don’t know.

It could be another additional tool, verified the reliability and trustworthiness, but for the moment it’s more appropriate to rely on concrete actions. Already adopt valid devices tested, professional and highly reliable to block criminals on the web, it would be a big step forward for both the authorities and citizens that will cooperate with law enforcement.

3D scanner capture images also from a kilometre away

A team of physicists from Edinburgh promise an imminent revolution in the security field and not only. At the center of their project there is a device able to analyze a vehicle or a particular subject also at a kilometer away.

The technology employed is called the “time of flight” and it has already been adopted for the systems “driverless cars”, but there were problems in perceiving the most distant objects. And the precision at long distance is just the characteristic of pride of the new product that exalts the probabilty of error at most an millimeter.

Let’s see how it works: the object that you want to investigate is hit by an infrared laser beam at low-voltage and according to the “time of flight”, so to the lightspeed of return (in addition to an image processing software), it makes a very accurate reconstruction.

The creators hope to develop a range of action of 10 km, if they will obtain the permission to proceed, and clearly also the necessary funding. Always the scanner designers believe that, thanks to future corrections on the image processor, it will possible to measure the speed and the direction of an object. The tool will certainly have uses in the military field, in areas of war or to prevent the risk of terrorism.

There is still a limit in the use of the scanner: it doesn’t detect the human skin because it reacts differently once it has hit by a laser, compared to other materials, leaving an image unclear. So to keep under control at long-distance humans and their movements will we have to make use of GSM bugs, tools that allow you to listen from any distance and that, through powerful software, also offer the possibility of eliminating any external noise. In short, the field of security and surveillance no longer knows boundaries of both time and space.
