Camouflaging for Facial Recognition

Camouflaging for Facial Recognition

Camouflage has changed the way of warfare dramatically here in the last 100 years. While Barre Army Navy Store sell more mundane military products http://www.vtarmynavy.com/ who knows what the future may hold.

I found this article yesterday in my google alerts http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2137201/How-hide-Big-Brother-Designers-tips-tricking-face-recognition-software-look-good-doing-it.html?ito=feeds-newsxml. It talks about ways to break up your facial signature using a zebra pattern camouflage called dazzle camo developed in WW2 by the british to avoid sub detection.

Perhaps this will start a new fashion trend. If so Barre Army Navy Store has lots of face paint http://shop.vtarmynavy.com/camouflage-face-paint-c154.aspx which certainly looks like the ticket to this type of camouflage.

While this all seems quite like science fiction see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Enemy_(TV_series)
and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Person_of_Interest_(TV_series) facial recognition software is the future.
