Panoptic Systems C-Thru 3D Video Surveillance System: Big Brother Watches You in 3D

An old Star Trek episode comes to life with the Panoptic Systems C-Thru 3D Video Surveillance System, a way for Big Brother to get a "god's-eye view" of everything going on inside a building or plane. Taking input from numerous 360-degree cameras placed throughout any location, the system combines all those images into one "auto-stereoscopic" display.

But wait, it gets better. The company has also implemented facial recognition software into the system, so it can not only keep track of where people are, but who they are, too. The surveillance system hasn't been implemented anywhere yet, but if this is actually practical and not just some pipe dream, let's just hope it's used for good rather than ill.
