Buy your own CCTV footage from UK amusement park 

An amusement park in the UK (no surprise) has found a way to try to commercialize CCTV. Slap on an RFID bracelet and their cameras will track you all day. Then, at the end of the day, you can get your own DVD souvenir of your time at the watch-iest place on Earth! Odd but innovative. See: It's YourDay and you're the star.

To be fair, it's not regular CCTV footage. It's CCTV-Plus!

What did we do to create YourDay at Alton Towers?

Firstly, we dug 6 km of trenches to hold 24 strands of fibre optic cable...

We installed and linked up 140 computer servers, 36 cameras and over 100 RFID antennae to create a data network across the 550 acre park - a big place to wire up!

After storyboards and scripts, we spent 13 days filming a huge cast of actors, including 80 extras, on the big rides and attractions, smiling and screaming in all the right places.

Plus we spent the equivalent of 3 'man' years to develop all the YourDay software.

Pull all these together and you get YourDay at Alton Towers!

Via: Amusement park offers surveillance footage of you as a souvenir - Boing Boing.
