Hack a security camera with a helium balloon

This balloon-based anti surveillance camera project by Brooklyn-based artist William Lamson is an easy way to fool even the most sophisticated forms of surveillance technology. Helium filled rubber balloon set to the correct height and covered with enough static electricity to stick to any surface, such as a public camera. Now if only they made robotic pins for security officers to pop them.

  1. Soon security cameras will come with…security cameras! For “protection” of course…Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

  2. Lame; sophisticated systems (not the cheap crap sold at Costco) have software that detects blocked/shifted images & alerts operators.
