Re: Face recognition

I guess a lot of muslim men and women will take to wearing a burka now then - the police will be powerless to make them show their faces in public Ha Ha...........

Re: Face recognition

Indeed @wotsupmaybe it's time for all males to self identify as female and for both to become ultra conservative followers of Islam.

My only problem would be do I wear a burka with or without heels

Madness of course, especially with my legs. 😂

Re: Face recognition

Perhaps, just wearing those sunglasses which darken outdoors, but turn clear indoors would be sufficient to foul up the recognition algorithms sufficiently?

Re: Face recognition

Used to have a pair of those years ago but they took quite a while to turn from light to dark and back again, but maybe like me they have improved with age!

Good idea if they have. 😃

Re: Face recognition

I used to have a nice pair of mirror sunglasses.

Don't see many of those around now so much probably because it tends to make people look a bit creepy. A sort of upper class hoody.

Re: Face recognition

I remember a few years ago seeing a video where a person went out in public with a home made device that blocked out digital CCTV cameras.

It was a baseball cap with infra red transmitter diodes under the peak powered by batteries, to the person viewing the cctv the area around the cap just appears as a bright white light blocking out the persons face.

IIRC it didnt take long for police to track the person down, catch up & ask what he was up to.

Re: Face recognition

If they were trying to be anonymous it sort of defeats that. When you are the only "glowing" one the camera operators have no real need to see your face.

Just wear a burka - you will blend in with the locals in most places in UK, and are extremely, extremely unlikely ever to get stopped even if you have a pair of size 12 trainers sticking out - and if you do get stopped just pull your racist / religious persection card out of your pocket and every copper within a mile radius will suddenly lose interest in you, they will all suddenly discover they have something very urgent to attend to somewhere else.

Presumably you speak from personal experience?

@PowerLee 

D'you think that would work with vehicle number plates and speed cameras?

Just wondering ... Cheesy

More chance of working with average speed cameras, but only in the dark when they switch to infrared

A bit like the Italian Job interfering with traffic light sequencing?
