Squid Game Home Security Camera Concept

While I'm a fan of Netflix's Squid Game series, and fully support the viral craze the twisted kiddie game drama has stirred up, I'm not sure I'd want a Squid Game worker serving as my home security camera. I mean, would the staffer in the pink jumpsuit and the shapely mask really do surveillance for me, or end up doing surveillance of me?

The Squid Game Home Security Camera is a concept developed by Cheon Ryong Choi, Soonook Kwon, and Jaeyeon Nam, and it's a doozie. The show's anonymous workers, with their bright attire and rounded hardshell black masks, physically lend themselves real dang well to the formation of whimsical, humanoid security cameras*. That doing so creates such rich irony - are you doing the watching or being watched? - makes the concept even more poignant...and creepy.

Unless you fancy yourself the Front Man, and have no question the faceless suits are working for you.

Choi, Kwon, and Nam created their Squid Game Home Security Camera with a privacy visor that retracts to reveal a lens "eye." The eye responds to sound and motion, rotating to provide a 180-degree view of its surroundings. Shiver. I think I'll stick to paying my respects to the series with a simple Squid Game Halloween costume.

*Their speaker grille cases make it easy to imagine turning your Alexa or other virtual assistant into a Squid Game-themed AI too.
