The wearer is invisible to prying eyes.
Increasingly, eyeglasses can do the darnedest things. A Japanese company has come up with glasses that short-circuit facial-recognition systems in cameras, thus allowing the wearer total privacy from prying eyes. The head of the research team that developed the glasses told the Wall Street Journal that “We are often told not to unveil our personal information to others, but our faces are also a type of an ID. There should be a way to protect that.” The so-called Privacy Visor is scheduled to go on sale by June 2016 and is expected to cost about $240.
