    Anti-Surveillance Mask Can Hide You From Biometric Face Scanners. SHTFplan.com

    If Leo Selvaggio has his way, you’ll be able to assume an alternative identity by using an age old low-tech strategy made possible by modern-day 3-D printers. It’s so simple that it’s brilliant, especially considering the fact that Selvaggio’s innovation is capable of compromising multi-billion dollar face recognition surveillance systems with the use of an easily obtainable personal prosthetic mask.

    These products only work with photos taken with flash photography ..

    I wonder if one can simply flip the plate upside down to defeat this technology

    UPDATE! Face-recognition pioneer warns of exploitation.'Robbing everyone of anonymity

    Now an industry consultant, Dr. Atick finds himself in a delicate position. While promoting and profiting from an industry that he helped foster, he also feels compelled to caution against its unfettered proliferation. He isn’t so much concerned about government agencies that use face recognition openly for specific purposes — for example, the many state motor vehicle departments that scan drivers’ faces as a way to prevent license duplications and fraud. Rather, what troubles him is the potential exploitation of face recognition to identify ordinary and unwitting citizens as they go about their lives in public. Online, we are all tracked. But to Dr. Atick, the street remains a haven, and he frets that he may have abetted a technology that could upend the social order.

    Face-matching today could enable mass surveillance, “basically robbing everyone of their anonymity,” he says, and inhibit people’s normal behavior outside their homes. Pointing to the intelligence documents made public by Edward J. Snowden, he adds that once companies amass consumers’ facial data, government agencies might obtain access to it, too.

    Several states have prohibitions against the wearing of masks in order to conceal the identity of the wearer. One idea might be to wear a hat or cap with infrared emitters on it.

    The other method (which might become women's fashion one day) is disruptive pattern makeup)

    That makeup looks like something Lady Gaga would wear. I like the hat idea though.

    You would hear bureaucratic back sides puckering from coast to coast if suddenly millions of citizens started showing up in these.
