Gadgets and other unusual research tools

Look at gadgets with a creative eye and see how you can use them in your investigations. Marcus Lindemann and his team have worked with hidden cameras in various settings since the year 2000, then they started playing with other gadgets. While their first GPS tracking project on bike theft failed completely (the bike was gone with all the gadgets and only a video of the theft was kept), they later used GPS tracking for a consumer story on parcel services to show why some parcels were not delivered. In other stories they used DNA analysis to document fraud in restaurants, infrared-cameras to find public buildings with a bad heating, and a time-lapse camera to monitor price changes at petrol stations. Currently they are working on a long-term project using newer and cheaper GPS tools. Marcus will present the tools and video footage in this session.
