Company Developing Facial Recognition Glasses To Help Stop Crime « CBS Miami

Allen Yang is the founder of Atheer, the company developing the real world glasses. The 3-D glasses are a wearable computer where users are wirelessly immersed in their own computer through virtual images. “And it’s streaming live from the internet to your glasses,” said Theo Goguely, senior product manager at Atheer. The glasses will ultimately be used by business for work or for regular users for entertainment. One could put on their glasses and instantly see a 3-D screen with a daytime calendar with a list of things to do. The smart glasses can assist users looking at their kitchen cupboard and they will help visualize nutritional needs. One of its goals is for use by law enforcement. For example, police wearing the glasses could scan a crowd and possibly locate a suspect or a lost child. This technology could have helped police find the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing sooner. Although police had images of the suspects, it took investigators days to identify them. Current facial recognition programs were limited in identifying the low resolution images of the suspects from surveillance cameras.
