The oddities never cease...now we have a wireless camera that can be powered entirely by the energy a fluorescent lamp wastes. The camera gets its power from the electromagnetic field generated by the AC souce in the light. Just clamp it on, and it runs.
Sharp expects that the technology can be used as a low-cost way to monitor (spy on) employees and improve productivity. The ultra-low-power camera can take a picture once every ten seconds and then wirelessly transmit it (using an 802.11b transmitter) to the boss's workstation. Kinda cool...kinda creepy...but definitely ecogeek.
