What you wear is what you are, with Google Glass
The science of deduction may yet be under scrutiny by cynics but they aren’t half aware of what absolute extremity awaits them. Thanks to Google Project Glass, deduction of personality is likely to be subjected to the clothes people wear. We’re not talking of human stereotype taking over technology but an extremely capable technology, contributing to the convenience of mankind Based on a report by New Scientist, Google has gone on to fund an application called InSight that helps identify people by the clothes they wear. With the help of what it calls a ‘fashion fingerprint’, the app can recognize people who are far away, thus going beyond the capability of facial recognition cameras and software. This sounds absurd but strangely though, it is capable in identifying a person 93% of the time. Head after the jump to make sense of it all.
Ones fashion fingerprint is created with the help of a smartphone app that takes a series of photographs of a person, thus creating a spatiogram. This helps identify colors, textures and patterns of clothes worn. What’s more is that the fingerprint changes each time the person changes their clothes. This solves the need for anonymity All the more do we crave for this wonder now, though when it arrives towards the end of the year, it could well cost in four figures.
