here’s a soon-to-be-released app that identifies strangers by using a creepshot a user uploads of them, to further enable your cyberstalking ways. This latest advancement in technology is an app called NameTag. It works by users uploading a snapshot of a person, where it’s then scanned and compared to publicly available social media accounts and dating website profiles. It also scans criminal databases, like the National Sex Offender Registry, to identify pervs.
Android and iPhone users will have access to it, but Google Glass has banned facial recognition apps from its store. The app’s developer, Kevin Alan Tussy, notes that jail-broken Glass devices can use it if you are talented enough to slyly wink to take pictures of your future crush.

Bad idea overall with these biometric face scanner tools popping up everywhere. Let alone an internal ID chip. Good luck with that unless they hold me down and physically stuff it down my throat.
As Google Glass I predict we'll see an upswing in facial clothing or coverings that will be used to defeat these technologies. Large wrap around sunglasses, lower face wraps, etc.
I hate this whole idea. That's why you'll never find a personal picture of me on the internet.edit on 270pm0101pm112014 by Bassago because: (no reason given)
