RoboCop-Like Glasses Will Scan and ID 400 Faces Per Second at Brazilian World Cup

To ensure that soccer fans are keps safe during the 2014 games, the Brazilian police have decided to take a law-enforcement cue from a classic sci-fi hero: RoboCop. For the next World Cup, authorities will be outfitted with high-tech glasses featuring tiny cameras able to snap 400 facial images per second—as far away as 12 miles—before sending them to a central database of 13 million faces for comparison.
