Brazilian police to use 'Robocop-style' glasses at World Cup

Any time the police begin to use high-tech gadgetry to track down criminals, the Robocop references become inevitable. This article from the Telegraph is not acception, but the technology is indeed interesting to note.

A small camera fitted to the glasses can capture 400 facial images per second and send them to a central computer database storing up to 13 million faces.

The system can compare biometric data at 46,000 points on a face and will immediately signal any matches to known criminals or people wanted by police.

If there is a match a red signal will appear on a small screen connected to the glasses, alerting the police officer of the need to take further action or make an arrest.
