Technology's intelligence has succeeded in creeping many people out, but a project called CV Dazzle by Adarm Harvey aims to obstruct a camera's ability to decipher your features in a crowd with facial recognition.

Undertaken as a thesis at New York University, CV Dazzle by Adarm Harvey explores the different kinds of disguises and camouflages one can apply to the face, hair and head to obscure the identity of the image read by programs like OpenCV.
