Graffiti Space Trap Tested

Fri Feb 14,10:29 AM ET Add Oddly Enough - Reuters to My Yahoo!

 

 

 

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Psssst, wanna catch a tagger?

 

 

 

Satellites and super-sensitive sensors are now tuned to the sibilant hiss of spray cans in a space-age effort to eradicate one of the oldest and most persistent urban problems -- graffiti.

 

 

TaggerTrap, a graffiti eradication system being tested in several California cities, uses global positioning system (news - web sites) technology, cell phones and sensors that recognize the ultrasonic pitch of spray cans to alert police when vandals begin their work, representatives said.

 

 

"The tagger, when he pushes down on that spray can, he's calling police," said George Lerg, co-founder of TrapTec, the Escondido, California-based company that developed TaggerTrap.

 

 

The unique, ultrasonic tone emitted by aerosol paint cans trips the sensors, which signal a transmitter linked to a police cell phone or radio. The global positioning system pinpoints the location of the transmitter, Lerg said.

 

 

The portable sensors have a range of 100 feet in any direction.

what's funny is you KNOW they're going to at least say what neighborhood/general vicinity the sensors will be installed at.

 

i say pack a brick and knock down anything that isn't (or is, either way) a camera and looks at you funny.
