Apple's all-seeing screen

I don't know...there's something disturbing about a display screen that can watch me while I'm watching it. It's a little too much like Big Brother for my taste.

From New Scientist:
"We could soon see a new kind of display screen from computer maker Apple – one that simultaneously takes pictures while showing images.

The clever idea is to insert thousands of microscopic image sensors in-between the liquid crystal display cells in the screen. Each sensor captures its own small image, but software stitches these together to create a single, larger picture."
