article imageGoogle Glass app is able to identify someone by their clothes

By Owen Weldon     Mar 9, 2013 in Technology
A new system called InSight, designed for Google Glass, can pick out people by their clothes, jewelry and other types of accessories.
According to CNET, the InSight system, partly funded by Google, will work with individuals' self-identification via smartphones and with Google Glass to analyze eyeglasses, clothes, as well as other items. Whenever a person bumps into that individual, their name can be displayed on the Google Glass headset.
According to RT, the app creates something called a 'fashion fingerprint' for every friend based on what they are wearing. This 'fashion fingerprint' is generated by photographing the user and then creating a file of that image, which is called a 'spatliogram.' The 'spatliogram' calculates the patterns and spatial distribution of colors that are on the user, and then the information is analyzed to help identify that person later on in the difference or even from a different angle.
According to Android Authority, the system demonstrated a 93 percent success rates during early testing.
Since the spatliogran changes every time a person changes their shirt or put a new piece of accessory on, it can be easy to evade tracking.
