In 2013, "Stealth Wear" was revealed - hoodies and cloaks made of nickel-metalized fabric that would potentially mask your body-heat signature from drones and thermal cameras. Many saw it as a step towards thwarting the overreach of the ubiquitous global surveillance machine.

Now Japanese researchers have created glasses that purportedly ’jam facial recognition systems to protect your privacy’.

Looking like a pair of safety goggles strung to a battery pack, the ’visors’ are not the most subtle form of identity recognition denial. However, as a prototype they open up ideas that can lead to a whole new range of privacy options.



What might be a better solution is working towards dismantling the whole security/surveillance state.

Baby steps.
