The Chinese Police are being equipped with “AR” Augmented Reality Glasses, and they are getting them to use for the Chinese New Year coming up this Friday the 16th. With a population of over 1.4 billion! The use of “AR” glasses could be useful. Especially useful with finding criminals, that’s right criminals. The police will be experimenting with their AR glasses.
The Chinese police can snap a picture of an individual in which they believe could be up to no good and get a full report on the suspect. Picture’s are run through a central data base and with the data compiled they will know their physical address, or if they have a criminal record and for what. I like to think of it as DNA for the future.
Has this ever worked!? Can it work? well, guess what folks? it Does work, It has worked, 7 times! Yes that is right 7 suspects ranging from human trafficking to Hit and Run Traffic Violations. The use of “AR” Glasses have helped catch criminals and that is an amazing innovation. Facial recognition is no big secret tho, it’s been around for a few years now and it’s been a custom for most Chinese citizens within the recent years, especially for A.T.M. machines.
If you would like to learn more about google glasses or buy a pair for yourself or a friend lets take a look at a few now.
- Moverio BT-300 Smart Glasses (AR/DeveloperEdition)
- Vufine+ Wearable Display
- PowerLead Mobile Theatre Video Glasses 52 Inch Virtual Screen
- Pasonomi 3D VR Glasses Virtual Reality Headset for iPhone & Android Smartphone
The examples we have here are ranging in price from top to bottom most expensive and complex to less expensive and less complex. The last one is a headset rather than glasses. It works for iPhone and Android phones. With “AR” and security getting more sophisticated I believe we should see a huge increase in the further development in “AR” and “AI” Artificial intelligence. Which we are already seeing in our homes and cars it’s everywhere. I am talking about Personal assistance like “Siri” or “Alexa” there is the Amazon Echo and the DOT these are just to name a few.
Hopefully if you are Celebrating the new year or taking part in the festivities I wish you well and have a safe and fun time!
