Night vision equipment extends outward from its surface, while its interior completes the tech-noir aesthetic with an intricate web of wires and glowing hardware.
uses the latest tech from the surveillance industry to capture and retain your every move.
It compares your actions to all previous participants, constructing a visual montage highlighting similar behavior.
