In The Light of Other Days, the wormcam is the ultimate in surveilance technology. Utilizing technology to stabilize and enlarge quantum wormholes, the wormcam pipes in photons from almost any other place within its range (which grows exponentially with new technology throughout the book), or, pointing it in another direction in space-time, from the past (that is, one year into the past for every light-year of range). The computers built into a wormcam then create an image from them, showing you a picture of anything going on at any time in the present or past (except a few, or perhaps only one, events so packed full of wormholes that viewing them is difficult, if not impossible).

Needless to say, the end of privacy brings about some rather drastic social changes.
