    Videographers - BEWARE! They can track you.

    Want to stay anonymous? Don't wear a camera!

    Next time you strap on a GoPro or other wearable camera, keep in mind that your movement pattern could someday be identified like a fingerprint.

    A recent study out of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (via The Verge) found that wearable camera users generate a biometric movement pattern in the recording as they walk. A computer algorithm could then pick up on this pattern with just a few seconds of video.

    Much like a fingerprint, a single video alone couldn't reveal someone's identity. But it could be linked to other videos that contain personally identifiable information.

    This was satellite surveillance technology available in the 1970s
    The HEXAGON's twin optical bar panoramic mirror cameras rotated as the swept back and forth as the satellite flew over Earth, a process that intelligence officials referred to as "mowing the lawn."

    Each 6-inch wide frame of HEXAGON film capturing a wide swath of terrain covering 370 nautical miles — the distance from Cincinnati to Washington — on each pass over the former Soviet Union and China. The satellites had a resolution of about 2 to 3 feet (0.6 to nearly 1 meter), according to the NRO.
    Can you imagine what the resolution of today's equipment might be?
    ....and you're worried about your Go-Pro?
