Silence of the Cams

This kind of goes back to the earlier thread about technology and memory, since the idea of recording every waking moment of one's life is predicated on some kind of always-on recording device: there appears to be a growing backlash against the stealth-nature of phonecams (Hungary, which moved to ban the taking of unauthorized photos and South Korea, which recently decreed that all camera phones must emit a beep of at least 65 decibels when taking a photo). So does this mean all videocams (when they reach an inconspicuous size) have to make that oh-so-nostalgic movie projector noise?
