While operating the Outer Band Individuated Teletracer, or O.B.I.T. machine, in a military base, Captain Harris is strangled. U.S. Senator Orville arrives at the base to investigate his murder and learns that there are several bases with the O.B.I.T. machine, which is capable to monitor in a video display the privacy of any person anywhere. Along his investigation, Senator Orville asks for information about the OBIT, such as who is the manufacturer, price, who bought, but no user has any information about the mysterious machine.

When viewing subjects on the O.B.I.T. screen, the surroundings and any objects they are holding are not visible, yet clothing and jewelry are visible. If the O.B.I.T. machine actually were to work on tuning in on the person's wavelength as described, then only the undressed person should be visible. See more
Agents of the justice department are rounding up the machines now. But these machines, these inventions of another planet have been cunningly conceived to prey on our most mortal weakness. In the last analysis dear friends, whether O.B.I.T. lives up to its name or not will depend on you.
