The DIY Surveillance Kit includes a Raspberry Pi is a powerful and lightweight credit-card sized computer. It comes with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1, a 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARMv8 CPU, 1GB RAM, 4 USB ports and 40 GPIO pins, making it a perfect platform for makers, and emerging Internet of Things projects. Raspberry Pi, This parabolic microphone isolates and captures sounds from a single subject, and extends the range about 10 times compared to a standard microphone. The design increases audio gain, broadens the frequency response, and improves isolation of the subject. microphone, This little 2.8" display comes fully assembled and ready to plug into the Raspberry Pi 3. It features 320x240 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay. The plate uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display for images, gifs or videostouchscreen, and a simple manual that helps the average citizen become a playful 007.

Made for makers.

We’ve developed the first ever gif generating DIY spy kit. The surveillance kit is easy to assemble yourself, and with Raspberry Pi 3, it is made for the maker community, designed to be hacked and repurposed. Pre-order  the DIY surveillance kit to get notified when it is available and the how-to video is released, along with tips on how to build it yourself.

Everyone is listening.

Governments and corporations are already listening, so why shouldn’t we? This new DIY Surveillance Kit enables everyone to spy on everyone. But unlike conventional eavesdroppers, we’ll listen to conversations and turn them into fun. Once assembled, simply point the parabolic microphone in the direction of the people you want to spy on, and watch as private conversations transform into real-time gifs on the device itself.

In the wild and wonderful world of memes, gifs, cats, snaps, lazers and emojis, it’s easy to forget that what we do and share is being collected and distributed.

The art of spying.

The DIY surveillance kit is an art project designed to raise awareness of data collection, privacy and transparency. Issues that will become even more important in the next 5-10 years as we continue to digitise every aspect of our lives.

“I see U” is an art project designed to raise awareness around data collection, privacy and transparency. It shows the dark side of surveillance against the backdrop of the wild and wonderful interwebs.







Trailerpark I/O.

“I see U” launched on July 29th at  Trailerpark I/O  in Copenhagen, where people were invited into an eavesdropping room that projected overheard conversations as real-time gifs on its walls, played with DIY surveillance devices, and learned how to build their own surveillance kit in a hands-on lab.


Trailerpark I/O is a playground for bright and curious minds that explores futuristic and visionary ideas presented through talks, exhibitions, labs, talent and film.

YOLO means we’re constantly sharing, and the data is being used IRL. We have the right to know how, why, where and by whom.

Wearable spam blockers.

These contact lenses filter the noise and clutter when walking around town, in stores, and block companies trying to tap into implanted skin chips.

Beacons, or location-based sensor technology, collect data on customers’ in-store behavior, and send push notifications to their smartphones. Target, Macy’s, Urban Outfitters, and CitiBank are just a few of the companies deploying beacons  in their stores.

If companies can track how customers move through stores, and send a push notification to someone walking past the store, it won’t be long until a wearable that blocks tracking is developed and launched.

Flavoured voice modifier.

Sounding like Morgan Freeman has never been so easy with our Swedish inspired ‘snus’ voice modifiers. Choose from 3 long-lasting flavours: Peanut butter, cherry pie and meringue.

Hasbro’s developed Sound Bites , musical lollipop holder. When someone bites into a Sound Bite lollipop, sound vibrations travel through the teeth to the inner ear.

If sound can be heard from inside the mouth, we should soon be able to camouflage what comes out.

Facial scrambler.

This nutrient rich cream is developed to protect against facial recognition software with nano organic LEDs.

Artists  are already exploring how fashion can be used as camouflage from face-detection technology, the first step in automated face recognition. A company, Lab 21  developed DNA Face Cream, custom-mixed for each customer.

Researchers in Japan have invented a Harry Potter-like invisibility cloak . It creates the illusion of transparency through a meta-material technology called Retro-reflective Projection Technology.

It’s not that far-fetched to imagine a facial DNA scrambler cream might hit the shelves in 2022.

Virtual camouflage.

For those uncomfortable with yet another implant, protect your wildest VR adventures with a blast from the past: the 80s headband. Your virtual data is saved via small microchips embedded in the headband.

Gaining access to what someone does in virtual reality seems a lot less difficult than decoding someone’s thoughts. Jack Gallant , a researcher at the University of California, Berkeley, has developed a device that uses brain scanning to peer into people’s minds and reconstruct what they’re seeing.

Private data vault.

Sensors are everywhere collecting data around every moment you make. Take control with our drone data collectors. They communicate with government and private systems so you decide who gets access to your data, and when.

The ReVault Smartwatch , wearable data storage, launched in 2015, allows people to auto-backup files and access them securely without Wi-Fi.

According the to WEF, by 2025, 1 trillion sensors will be connected to the internet and over 50% of internet traffic will come from appliances and devices in the home.

Imagine the potential security and privacy implications when data is stored in sensors, everywhere.
