Washington: For those who are annoyed with their photographs being auto-tagged on social media sites like Facebook, a new t-shirt has been designed in a bid to thwart automated face recognition.
The t-shirts are plastered with distorted images of celebrity faces like Michael Jackson and Britney Spears and designed to confuse Facebook algorithms.
As part of designer Simone C. Niquille's thesis at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam, the Realface Glamoflage t-shirts are created as a 'tool for privacy protection', Cnet reports.
Niquille said that the t-shirts would provide the necessary protection and wouldn't require much time to think in the morning as no adaptation period is needed.
The report added that the t-shirts, which also includes faces resembling that of US President Barack Obama, can be custom printed for roughly 65 dollars.
