/ technical details /

Technology is only interesting when it is vigorously empowering its users, or helping them to rethink their environment. This installation uses the voip telephone technology to help those who experience rethink their cellphones as pocket recording and listening devices.

We provide a computer running the linux operating system and the asterisk pbx software. As well contact microphone with custom electronics for long cable runs. Depending on the material available this installation can be very low cost.

The only requirements, for us to install this installation are:
