Wave of the future: Company’s new prosthetic face will help you dodge surveillance cameras

An activist focused on surveillance issues is seeing the future — and everyone in it looks like him.
Leo Selvaggio thinks enough Americans are growing worried enough about the omnipresence of security cameras, ubiquitous personal recording devices and ever-more-precise face recognition software that they’re willing to wear a rubber prosthetic mask to conceal their actual identities, according to the technology website CNET.
That would make it impossible to be picked up and identified by a random street camera or caught in the background of a picture taken by a stranger then tagged on the Internet. It might keep them from landing in the authorities’ files too, if they’re part of any street demonstrations.
