Police and soldiers in Brazil are preparing to keep the peace at the 2014 World Cup using "Robocop-style" sunglasses. The "Robocop-style" sunglasses are designed to aid police and soldiers in spotting criminals and possible troublemakers, who might be mingling amongst the sure-to-be massive crowds.
Brazil is a soccer-crazy country, but it is also a dangerous country that has its fair-share of gangsters and drug dealers. The "Robocop-style" sunglasses can inspect 400 faces per second, using 46,000 points of comparison. The glasses are designed to be used from a range of about 160ft., but officials say that they have a maximum range of twelve miles! It will be interesting to say the least to see if these new glasses help keep the violence at bay at the 2014 World Cup. Looks like Brazil’s criminals are going to have to watch the action from home.
