I was gemused to read recently that our "respected" and "thrifty" local councils may soon have a new weapon at their disposal in their ongoing battle of Ker Farking Ching.
"In bin" cameras have been developed that record what someone has thrown away every time they use their kitchen bin, the pictures are then sent to a social networking site so that their rubbish can be monitored and neighbours can comment on their recycling habits.
Errrmmm...what kind of saddo would spend hours watching an in bin camera on the net (especially given the vast amount of free porn available)?
BinCam, as it is called by the people who developed it in Newcastle University, has been trialled inside of students' kitchen bin lids. The trials will be extended to student houses at three universities in Britain and Germany later this year, and then on to staff homes.
Methinks that if any council ever tried this one out (I am sure that many would love to), then the camera would end up in a very dark place indeed!
