Bluefish , created by ITP student Ian Curry, is a surveillance system which tracks the presence of Bluetooth devices, and their users.

Bluefish constantly scans for Bluetooth-enabled devices. Every time it detects a new bluetooth device, it takes a picture, and a 15 second movie in the assumed direction of the device. The fist time it processes that person’s data and catalogues it for the future. The next time, it will bluetooth that device user a picture of him/herself from the last time it saw him/her with a timestamp. The user may then visit a website to view the videos that Bluefish has captured.

Over time, a profile is built for each discovered device, making it possible to track individual users who frequent the scanning area.

Via picturephoning.
