Where’s my face?
January 23, 2013 |
There are so many ways to watch over us these days that sometimes I feel like I’m living in the Big Brother house.
But now scientists at Tokyo’s National Institute of Informatics have developed glasses that block facial recognition software. The hi-tech specs use a near-infrared light source to confuse the software by adding noise to photographs without affecting your vision.
There are cheaper alternatives – tilting your head at a 15-degree angle tricks the software into thinking that you’re faceless!
The glasses might help protect your privacy, but could they also be used for the wrong reasons?
