DailyDirt: Everything Will Recognize You

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Cameras are everywhere. High resolution image sensors are getting really small, and they’re not just in smartphones anymore. Some folks used to joke about combining cameras with all kinds of gadgets/appliances, but it’s not really a joke anymore. Maybe your toaster doesn’t have a camera yet, but there could be a microwave oven or refrigerator with some crazy sensors in your kitchen someday. Big Brother might be an internet of things.

After you’ve finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

Re: Re:

The InfoWars video was actually pretty reasonable.

InfoWars is a great example of concern trolling or getting facts right but drawing a flawed conclusion on any given week.

Just becasue the reporting source is distasteful should not negate the source material.

>it’s not clear if anyone with a visual impairment would actually want to use a fancy digital cane regularly

That brings up an interesting point. The disabled don’t really have much choice in software or methods to protect your privacy. Just think of how much harder to use the tools you rely on would be if you were visually impaired.

Re: What's the best API for the Facial recognition?

Since a recent discussion here highlighted the fact that far too many people misunderstand what an API actually is, I need to correct this. You’re looking for the best engine for face recognition, not the best API. An API is the specification for how you’d communicate with the engine.
