Have you heard about this?

According to Thursday's Wall Street Journal (8/13/98 p. B7),
Sony is halting shipments of some video cameras because the
cameras can see through clothes.

Some versions of the Handycam were developed with infrared
technology designed to let users film in the dark. But, as
Sony accidentally discovered, if the infrared feature is
used in a lit area, the camera can see through clothing.
"Underwear can show up," the article says. "And people
wearing swimsuits look almost naked."

Sony has recently modified the camera so the infrared
feature only works at night, but 870,000 mischievous
cameras have already been sold. Congratulations to all of
you who bought an infrared Handycam before the modification!
