Do you know that we have a mobile application (comes with built-in face recognition software) that can help us identify strangers that we’ve met anywhere in the world simply by pointing our smartphones (must have cameras) at their faces? This is no longer the stuff of science fiction! We have it for real now, come and take a look at Recognizr, the mobile app that will freak you out if you are very concerned with privacy!
Recognizr (Augmented Identity App, powered by Social Media) helps you identify freaking strangers with your smartphone
According to Technology Review, the mobile app is developed by The Astonishing Tribe (TAT) and made to run on Android-powered smartphones that have 5-megapixel cameras. As you can see from the above video, the mobile application is able to recognize facial features so accurately that it can pull information about the person caught on camera from social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and etc! Freaking awesome!
