These glasses confuse facial recognition technology

New Glasses Make You Invisible To Facial Recognition

If privacy is you number one concern, these glasses are for you.

A variety of companies and institutions are developing devices that trick facial recognition technology and let you walk around without the fear of having your face picked up by a camera.

The National Institute of Informatics in Japan is the latest player in the industry, with a pair of glasses that emit light and managed to trick 90% of smartphone cameras during tests.



According to the Wall Street Journal the glasses will hit the Japanese stores by June 2016 and sell for $240.
