Target Project cameras record race and weight, raise awareness of spying on citizens

If you feel like you're being spied upon now, you ain't seen nothin' yet. Designer Benjamin Males presents Target Project, part performance art and part tech demo that shows how easy it is to automatically gather and record racial and obesity data with surveillance cameras. Nice way to raise awareness, Benjamin.

Imagine the possibilities: The tech could be used at airports, furtively measuring your weight so the airline will know how much fuel to pump into your plane. Or, the cameras could be placed at the turnstiles of a political convention to prove that the delegates were 99.9% fat white males.
