Spotted by the Spoticam
You’re a guest at your colleague’s house warming party. A pretty place he’s got, “Itch”, fitted with modern contemporary furnishings. “Itch”. The place oozes class. Very chic. “Itch”
That itch in your nose has been bothering you for a while now but you don’t want to be seen picking your nose in front of the other guests to get to that itch. You find a little deserted corridor. Alas, an opportunity to rid the itch. You pick away… and nonchalantly flick away the bit that was bothering you.
Suddenly, you realise something on the far wall facing you and it looks like it could possibly be a… NOOO, surveillance camera? What sort of paranoid fool do you have for a colleague? And what sort of disgusting act of yours is now caught on camera?
You hear a crowd of people coming your way. You turn around to see your host showing his guests around his dear abode. He lifts his arm up to flick a switch…
Suddenly the corridor lights up. Everybody oohs and ahhs after your host completes his sentence “and that my friends, is the Spoticam – a lamp designed to look like a surveillance camera”
Now feeling foolish, but somewhat relieved that your host will never find out that you’ve discarded a little booger somewhere in his home, you yourself get pretty amused with the crafty design. Clever, ain’t it? The folks who created the Spoticam, think so too.
On your drive home, you can’t quite shrug off thinking that perhaps the lamp doubles as a surveillance camera too…
