The ultimate disguise for the digital era is set to go on sale in Japan.
The National Institute of Informatics said it has developed eyeglasses that help users protect their privacy by disabling facial-recognition systems in cameras.
The Privacy Visor, created by the government-affiliated institute and an eyeglass maker in Japan’s Fukui prefecture, uses unique angles and patterns on its lens that reflect or absorb light. This prevents the recognition systems in digital cameras and smartphones from spotting a human face in a shot and focusing on it.

Thus the pull and push of technology continues, in a cross correlation I work in the IT and security and network and low voltage industry's. I've always suspected that the anti virus company's are infact creating the viruses themselves, as soon as a new virus comes out a fix is established so quickly. It seems contrived. Very cool on the glasses though

Meh...it may not pick your face up as a recognized "face" in the recognition program, but it can't hide your face. Eigenface programs would pretty easily counter this tech....it uses shadows and distance from points on your face to discern who you are.
