Intelligenter Vorhang von Niklas Roy

Niklas Roy hat eine Werkstatt in einem ehemaligen Laden mit Schaufenster zur Straße hin. Um etwas mehr Privatsphäre zu haben, hat er sich mit einer Überwachungskamera, einem Laptop und ein wenig anderem Kram einen "schlauen" Vorhang gebastelt:

With a motor attached, it positions the curtain exactly where the pedestrians are ... But in the end, it doesn’t protect my privacy at all. It seems that the existence of my little curtain is leading itself ad absurdum, simply by doing its job very well.
