Dubai is equipping police detectives with Google Glass

30 sec read

Google’s official stance on Google Glass facial recognition is that it’s not allowed, but that isn’t stopping Dubai’s police force. According to Reuters, Dubai detectives are planning to wear Google Glass with facial recognition capabilities on board. The software, developed in-house by the police force, will let detectives match faces against a database to identify wanted suspects.

Dubai police plan to issue detectives with Google Glass hands-free eyewear to help them fight crime using facial recognition technology, a police spokesman in the wealthy Gulf Arab emirate said. The wearable device consists of a tiny computer screen mounted in the corner of an eyeglass frame and is capable of taking photos, recording video and playing sound. The spokesman confirmed a report in Dubai’s 7 Days newspaper that software developed by Dubai police would enable a connection between the wearer and a database of wanted people.
