This Mask Disrupts Facial Recognition Cameras

If continuous, mass surveillance is our future, then we'll need ways to protect ourselves from our would-be masters. That's why Noma Studio, a design office in Poland, developed the Incognito. It claims that wearing this mask makes facial recognition software unable to pin down a firm identity. So far, it works on Facebook's facial recognition system. Dezeen reports:

They made use of the site's DeepFace deep-learning facial-recognition system, which accurately identifies the people pictured and asks if you'd like to tag them.
Due to the size and arrangement of each of the elements of the mask, the prominent features on the human face are disturbed, and face-recognition algorithms in surveillance cameras aren't equipped to read them correctly.
