Augmented reality app lets you scan FACES and reveal everything about a person
It’s billed as the world’s first facial recognition for phones.
The profiles are strictly an opt-in only experience, meaning members of the public have to go through a process to get their faces recognised and turned on before they become “blippable”.
They can switch their profiles ‘on’ and ‘off’ as they wish.
The app can also be used to scan faces on TV or in print – meaning you could look up a particular actor or musician.
“Over 70,000 public figures will be automatically discoverable with information drawn from publicly accessible sources unless they choose to set up their own AR Face profile, giving them control of the information communicated,” said Blippar in a press release.
