Chicago startup firm Reflectacles is creating eyeglasses to thwart facial recognition technology, Chicago Inno reports.

The company is raising money via Kickstarter for its latest products, called IRpair and Phantom. They’re expected to be delivered in April.

Chicago Inno reports that they “block 3D infrared facial mapping during both day and night and block 2D video algorithm-based facial recognition on cameras with infrared for illumination.”

Company founder founder Scott Urban says he’s heard from people in other countries who want to stay out of facial recognition data banks while participating in protests.

So far, about $34,000 has been pledged on Kickstarter from 193 backers.
