Clapper: For Your Car

Practicing memory games is supposed to ward off dementia, but it's likely some people will happily trade brain cells for never again losing their car in one of Santa Monica's garages. Via the Los Angeles Times' : "Santa Monica Place recently unveiled the nation's first camera-based "Find Your Car" system. Shoppers who have lost track of their vehicle amid a maze of concrete ramps and angled stripes can simply punch their license plate number into a kiosk touch screen, which then displays a photo of the car and its location." But privacy experts worry the technology can be used by everyone from stalkers to repo companies. [LA Times]
