The Chinese are here again. The Chinese are here again. Chinese police are now using dark sunglasses equipped with facial recognition technology to spot criminal suspects.The glasses allow police to almost instantly view an individual's personal details, including name, ethnicity, gender and address
The amazing glasses(depends on who you ask), which are being worn by police at a busy train station ahead of the Chinese New Year travel rush, are linked to a central database which contains details of criminal records. Wearing the technology, police can almost instantly view an individual's personal details, including name, ethnicity, gender and address.
Already Police at the Zhengzhou East Railway Station have arrested seven people who were suspected of being involved in kidnapping and hit-and-run cases during an operation which began last week, media reported.They have also held another 26 people who were using fake identification cards.
The camera is connected by an electronic lead to a hand-held device. The device has an app where police officers can process images they have taken of suspicious individuals.The app allows access to the database that also provides information on whether the suspect is on the run from police, and even their recent Internet history.
So in summary, be careful of what you do in China. Of course you are being watched.
