Privacy Machine (Obfuscating camera)

Brief description

An electronic way to say, “I want to be private today and not appear in your social media photos.”

Privacy Machine is a working proof of concept: stand in front of the screen and take the badge or the scarf. Both have a special pattern on it. As long as this pattern is recognized by the camera, the software will pixelate your face. It‘s an unrealistic wish because manufacturers would have to integrate this software into their smartphones as a default.

Work that the situation appears in
