The London Daily Mail reported that new technology allows security cameras to read a person's text messages and, in the future, could possibly pick up raised voices and detect drugs.
Some legal expects call the new camera advancements "worrying."
"It's quite worrying when we, by default, move to some sort of Orwellian 1984 where the state or 'Big Brother' watches your every move," civil liberties lawyer Michael Bott said.
"We don't realize what we are giving up when we give the state the power to monitor our private lives," he added.
