    Racist my arts...

    They didn't develop the technology, it's just a modification of systems that have been around for 44 (yes 44) years in various forms and guises. The original systems were developed in the USA and at Stamford University in the mid 1960s, primitive as they were.

    an american sitcom (bettor off ted) has an episode that discusses this. apparently in the show, the entire building is fitted with sensors that oni detects white employees, not black. door sensors, water fountains, lights, elevators...funny show.

    life imitating art, or vice versa?

    =.= and i thought this would be commonsense.

    as we all know, being darker means: the light reflected off u is lesser, less details can be observed. harder to compare etc etc

    dun believe, get a white stand infront a white background. that camera is going to be racist and only identify black.

    (k actually everyone here knows. i mean we are all photographers =.=)
