Recognizr: An Augmented Identity App

Posted by Andrew Price

There's been lots of talk about augmented reality. In this video (after the jump) see what the beginnings of augmented identity might look like. This app, Recognizr, can learn to recognize people's faces and link them to their social networking identities.

This is a prototype, but I think it's clear that advances in computer vision are going to really transform technology in the near future. Pretty soon, our phones will be able to recognize anything (and any external camera will be able to recognize us).
