If you're the sort of person who has really restrictive Facebook privacy settings, you may be interested in owning one of these Pixelhead Limited Edition disguises. Face recognition software will soon be more precise and more prevalent on the streets. You wouldn't want to be identified unknowingly, or worse, photographed with your face forever archived.

Martin Backes has been working on this amusing mask for a year and is now finally launching just 333 made-to-order models. His prototype featured the previous German Secretary of the Interior but this version pictures the current one, Hans-Peter Friedrich, with a pixelated image of his face. The Pixelhead Limited Edition balaclava is made from sporting elastic fabric and includes handy holes for your eyes and mouth. Ideal as a ski mask or a robbery disguise.
