Brazilian Police Outfitted with Facial Scanning Glasses to Pick Out the Criminals.

The future of crime fighting is NOW...! 
Brazilian police are getting a new toy, glasses that scan faces in crowds to automatically pick out the criminals. Sounds like a sci-fi movie, huh? Brazil plans on getting the authorities familiar with this new tech now and ready when they host the 2014 World Cup in Rio de Janeiro... 
The glasses use advanced facial recognition technology that can scan 400 faces a second at 50 yards away. The glasses scans 46,000 biometric points on a person's face and compares it against a criminal database. When the glasses find a bad guy (it's actually a camera attached to the glasses), a red light pops up inside the glasses and alerts the officer on what to do.

Did someone say, "Facial Scanning?"
Old news to me....
