Each of the wearables work to protect the user’s identity from facial recognition, heartbeat detection or gait-tracking technology while still being visually appealing.
Sallam developed her project as a follow up to Ewa Nowak’s anti-AI Incognito mask. The designer appreciated the mask’s beautiful design but noticed that tracking technology had advanced so rapidly that the mask was no longer effective against certain types of recognition.
This includes Amazon Rekognition – the facial recognition software most commonly used by the American police force.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE.
