Cafeteria Tray Cam!

Okay, imagine this... each kid in the whole school gets his/her own custom lunch tray with a bar code on it.  Then as the kid goes through the lunch line, a red-light camera snaps a pic of everything on the tray.  Then let's go another step and when the kid turns in his tray of trash, another traffic cam photographs the trash and a fancy computer compares the two images and figures out what the kid ate and what he traded to his buddy for science homework.  Wouldn't that be cool!?!  Right?  Right?

Federally funded.  $2 mill.  Don't believe me?  Here's a link:  Wacky Lunch Cam Story.
