I'd be quite doubtful of its ability to do anything really meaningful. It
seems to require a 90degree full on angle, and pretty close up too. I would
be pretty doubtful of say the ability of e.g. security cameras to capture
iPad passwords...

And- if you already have a camera trained on you, half the battle's already
lost...
