Las Vegas is installing Intellistreets, streetlights that look ordinary but can record video and audio of motorists and passers-by. Civil liberty proponents are worried about Big Brother. The Vegas lamps don't have the recording features, but are equipped with speakers and video monitors to display messages or ads. The LED lamps, made by Illuminating Concepts, operate over a Wi-Fi network linked to a central server. Some cities in Europe have installed similar streetlights with full monitoring gear.
