Breakthroughs in Photo Technology

Theres been quite a bit of important photo technology reporting done recently--the kind of reporting that everyone should know about. I'm just glad that years of research by engineers have brought us to this point. The first story has to do with a new kind of clothing that contains subliminal messages visible only to digital cameras. Go here for the details. The second story, even more interesting, comes from Wired magazine. Apparently (and this is news to me), pervy photo geniuses in Japan have

There"s been quite a bit of important photo technology reporting done recently--the kind of reporting that everyone should know about. I'm just glad that years of research by engineers have brought us to this point. The first story has to do with a new kind of clothing that contains subliminal messages visible only to digital cameras. Go here for the details. The second story, even more interesting, comes from Wired magazine. Apparently (and this is news to me), pervy photo geniuses in Japan have figured out how to use camcorder night-vision mode to see through fabric! But what technology gives, it can take away. A company is now marketing panties that impervious to such spying. The company plans to bring out an impervious bra, too. Go here if you don't believe me.
