You can't get lost in a crowd anymore

FASCINATING (And a little SCARY)!!! You used to be able to get lost in the crowd, but not anymore. Double click on any area in the picture to bring the person closer. Or, just click the mouse and use the mouse wheel to bring them closer. This is scary -- kinda puts an end to the old saying, "you can get lost in the crowd." This just happens to be a photograph of the 2009 Obama Inauguration. Look at this technology! You can see IN FOCUS the face of EACH individual in the crowd!!! You can scan and zoom to any section of the crowd ... wait a few seconds ... double click anywhere ... and the focus adjusts to give you a very identifiable close up The picture was taken with a robotic 1474 megapixel camera (295 times the standard 5 megapixel camera). Everyone attending could be scanned after the event, should something have gone wrong during it. Click on:

Imagine the high-tech stuff they have that we don't know about.

There is no limit to the number of pixels they can come up with.
