Copenhagen Tracks Visitors via Wi-Fi, Why Hello Big Brother!

Wherever you go, whatever you do, count on Copenhagen to be sneaking up right behind you.

Planning for a trip to ? Well prepare to be tracked!

In what seems to be a reality show gone out of proportion; , an aviation communication and company, has set up a new system being used in the city. The new system will track down movements of visitors to via mobile and Wi-Fi devices.

Of course, the company, through a New York Times interview with Innovation Manager – – dismisses the system as nothing more than a means to improve the layout of the airport. But with this much power in their hands, there’s little to no doubt that they’ll use these information far more than an indicator for European feng shui.

SITA is hoping that the technology would be duplicated around the world with more travellers carrying enabled devices. There’s an upside to this though, as the service would also provide location-specific information plus shopping deals depending on where in the airport you’re currently at. Pretty nice way to cover up things, huh?
