Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes ""NameTag, an app built for Google Glass by a company called FacialNetwork.com, offers a face scanner for encounters with strangers. You see somebody on the sidewalk and, slipping on your high-tech spectacles, select the app. Snap a photo of a passerby, then wait a minute as the image is sent up to the companyâ(TM)s database and a match is hunted down. The results load in front of your left eye, a selection of personal details that might include someoneâ(TM)s name, occupation, Facebook and/or Twitter profile, and, conveniently, whether thereâ(TM)s a corresponding entry in the national sex-offender registry.""
