Audio can now be recovered from soundless video...

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Audio can now be recovered from soundless video...

Post by OrangeDragon »



This means that audio surveillance can now be done with pretty much any object setting in plain sight of the room where a conversation is happening... kinda spooky.

They do seem to be making the project fairly open source... which is cool (rather than DARPA just closing the lid and hiding it in their vaults for fed use only). But still fucking spooky.

And once it's out I'll definitely be getting my hands into it... some potentially cool audio recoveries to be had with something like that.

At times you are a fathomless mystery, OD.

?

I love tech. I also respect it and see easily how it can be misused in many cases. Example, most laws say that filming from outside of a domicile requires no legal warrant so long as the location of the camera isn't trespassing. If you can then recover the audio from that recording, say from the blinds/curtains they drew to protect the conversation from eavesdropping/video surveillance, you have a wiretap/bugged location without the need for a warrant. Cool and scary at the same time.

It's just getting to about the right time for North Korea to deploy the largest EMP device known to man.

Yeah, but fearless leader built it and the only result from it will be the whole world smelling burnt microwave popcorn for 3 days.
