Chinese Cyber Cafes- Continuously Monitored

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 14, 2011


Chinese law requires that all Internet cafes and nightclubs have security cameras that continuously send images directly to neighborhood police stations. Face recognition computer software is being rapidly installed at police stations across the nation to process these images

    This won’t work because of all the illegal cafes that are built into dingy warehouses and other such shady locations…. desidents would probaby use those. The odd thing, is I can’t find Internet gaming cafes in Hong Kong, just Arcades.

    Arcades have died off along long time ago in North America, with the advent of Blizzard games, porn, or mp3s, and the xbox.
