Robocop glasses to aid the Brazilian police?

Criminals in Brazil that plan to attend hide out at large events to stay away from the authorities better stay at home. Some “Robocop”-style glasses have apparently made their way over to armory of the military police and they are putting them to the test. These futuristic high-tech glasses contain tiny cameras that “can capture 400 facial images per second and send them to a central computer database storing up to 13 million faces.” If a face spotted matches a criminal in the database, the glasses will alert its wearer to that particular person so the officer can take action. Using over 46,000 unique points on a person’s face for accuracy, it would be difficult to fool the system (unless of course the criminal wears a full-face mask which should make him look out of place in the first place). The glasses are said to also be able to zoom into an individual up to 12 miles away. The police are currently testing these glasses for the upcoming world cup in Brazil 2014. If proven to be effective, you can expect a worldwide rollout of these bad boys.
