Facial Recognition App for Android Phones...



Although still in the prototype phase, The Astonishing Tribe (TAT) is working on an App for Android phones called Recognizr. With this App, you can scan people's faces then automatically bring up any publicly available info on that individual. Sounds great right? This brings a whole new era on making new friends by profiling them at introduction. I'm imagining single people at the bar singling out people before even talking with them... 
The main downside to the app at this point is that it requires that participants all be users of the mobile app in order to be recognized, which seriously diminishes its usefulness. Hopefully, that will change with time, and anyone sharing facial data on social networks could participate.


Look for the release of this App for Android phones in the next few months...
