Recognizr: Face-Recognition Software for Android [Video]
The folks over at The Astonishing Tribe — tat for short — have come up with a facial recognition app for Google’s free mobile OS. The app is called Recognizr and is not only able to connect faces with your handset’s address book, but it can match the person’s face to social networking profiles so you can to identify the user by face.
As most of you already know, face recognition isn’t a new concept on Android, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 has the ability to identify people’s pictures and then link them to their Contacts entries. But the Recognizr app is said to give facial recognition capabilities to all Android devices and not just one.
As of now Recognizr is in the prototype stages, but the folks from TAT expect to have a version of the app in the Android Market in a few months. One of the caveats of the app at this point is that in order to be recognized, participants must be users of the mobile app. It is still a great concept though, let us know what you think about it.
