Facial Recognition Glasses To Stop Crime Before it Happens

in hardware on (#3FW)
A company has developed glasses that will give users not only an interactive, virtual 3-D display, but also the ability to spot individual faces among a crowd of people, something the company says will aid police in predicting and thwarting "future" crimes.

Capitalizing on the popularity of Apple's soon-to-be-released techie eyewear, Atheer Labs has created a set of eyeglasses that give users "immersive 3-D," surrounding them "with information wherever [they] turn and look.."

Similar to Google Glass, the Atheer One, as the glasses are dubbed, connects to the web, streams videos, and can act as a virtual calendar and organizer.

Why the focus on "crime"? (Score: 1)

There are so many awesome things this technology could be used for. Why focus on the prevention of crime. I hope it'll be used for good, but this story makes it sound like it's just another tool in the quest for lifelong punishment for even minor offenses.
