Need more privacy? Make auto curtain mover like this one

Need more privacy like Niklas Roy? Well he has developed a robotic machine that can help you to hide from people. The system is very simple that uses a security camera, a curtain and a computer to detect movements in views.

The cam detects the human movement using a computer app and then send the signal to machine to move curtain to a specific position. But the problem is that It can handle once person at a time, eg if multiple people are walking outside window where the curtain will go? Well, whatever it is. It working good for Niklas Roy's privacy.

According to Niklas Roy:
My workshop is located in an old storefront with a big window facing towards the street. In an attempt to create more privacy inside, I've decided to install a small but smart curtain in that window. The curtain is smaller than the window, but an additional surveillance camera and an old laptop provide it with intelligence: The computer sees the pedestrians and locates them. With a motor attached, it positions the curtain exactly where the pedestrians are.
The whole setup works really well. But in the end, it doesn't protect my privacy at all. It seems that the existence of my little curtain is leading itself ad absurdum, simply by doing its job very well. My moving curtain attracts the looks of people which usually would never care about my window. It is even the star of the street, now! My curtain is just engaged. And because of that, it fails.
