Gone Fishin'

Ian's BlueTooth Project:
Bluefish is a surveillance system which tracks the presence of Bluetooth devices, and their users.
Bluefish constantly scans for Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as phones, PDA's, and wireless peripherals. When a new device is found, Bluefish takes a picture of the area in which the device is discovered and catalogues all retrievable information about the device. If the device is ever discovered again, the user will be sent the last image captured of them via Bluetooth. All images are tagged with the device's name and the time it was last observed.

Over time, a profile is built for each discovered device, making it possible to track individual users who frequent the scanning area.
