Clouding Badge Disguises Your Photographed Appearance on Bad Hair Days

The Private Photo Clouding Badge would be ideal for one of those days when you just don't feel very attractive. It happens to the best of us. Alternatively, you might never appreciate your picture being taken. This invention would be terribly useful in either scenario.

A team from TDLAB of Sungkyunkwan University have dreamed up this cloud-shaped brooch that you wear on your collar, or somewhere close to your face. This tiny embellishment can be worn in inactive or active mode, depending on your attitude and your atmosphere. Switch it on to cause the image of your facial features to blur in every single photo that's taken. In inactive mode, the Clouding Badge will allow your likeness to be captured, but it will track the precisely where the picture gets uploaded from that camera.
