FaceID Face Masks

During this time when so many people are wearing and talking about face masks, I thought it would be interesting to find out if face mask design or even fashion is changing. One artist, Danielle Baskin, designed a face mask whose appearance looks like the part of a face that it covers –– this allows people to unlock their phones using facial recognition even while wearing a face mask! Interestingly, it’s also an anti-surveillance technology, because devices that “recognize” someone wearing this mask wouldn’t actually learn that person’s real face.
