Cyber-Camoflage: Apparently The 80s Were Right

Well, apparently those 80s cyberpunk films were correct; in the future, abstract tribal facepaint will totally be in. A student at the Interactive Telecommunications Program of New York University, Adam Harvey, has been experimenting with methods of fooling facial detection software. He’s found that abstract, asymmetrical designs work best; he then posits that, as privacy concerns increase, people will then start adapting such patterns into their personal style as a matter of habit. I like where this is going, personally.

That facial tribal tattoo still makes you look like a fucking idiot though. Seriously, what were you thinking?
