The border that separates North Korea from South Korea is one of the most militarized places in the world. There are about a million soldiers and a million antipersonnel mines along a strip 248 kilometers long and four kilometers wide.
Now, it is not only soldiers who guard this border, but also Microsoft’s Kinect.
South Korean programmer Jae Kwan Ko developed a program based on the Kinect to monitor the Korean demilitarized zone (ZDC), which was implemented last August, but whose existence was only recently made public.
The system would be able to identify the objects that cross the ZOC, differentiating when it corresponds to an animal or a human, in order in the latter case to notify the nearest surveillance post.
via They use the Kinect to police the world’s most militarized border – FayerWayer.
