  • Invisibility Glasses by AVG, a software security company, use infrared LED light and retro-reflective materials to block a clear facial capture
  • Glasses, which are only a prototype, break facial detection software, such as technology used on Facebook

The developers of the privacy glasses, AVG Innovation Labs, said that with the advancement in facial recognition technologies like Facebook’s DeepFace system, they began investigating how technology can be used when it comes to securing online privacy.

DeepFace will be able to determine whether two captured faces are of the same person with 97.25 per cent accuracy.

And this coupled with other advancements left developers questioning how to combat privacy.

The glasses, through the use of infrared LED light and retro-reflective materials, block a clear facial capture of the wearer, developers claim.
