[Engadget] Liquor stores will laugh in the Face.com at your fake ID

Okay, it's only three months 'till your glorious twenty-first birthday, so near, yet technology has to come along and rain on your parade. You might think you look legal, but if claims by engineers at Face.com are to be believed, they're not having it. Using the firm's face recognition technology and a new API, they believe it can determine age based on a photo. The technology is open to all developers who might want to add age restriction into their apps, although it's unlikely that you would want to rely on this as your sole method of verification. The algorithm takes a number of factors into account, such as face shape, and skin smoothness, so at the very least you'll be able to find out if your t-zone routine is working. Hit up the more coverage link, where there's a free iOS app to learn the harsh reality.

Twenty-first birthday Sixteenth birthday...

Still I don't think that this would be legitimate enough to validate a persons age in any commercial way.

But quite frankly its a really nice innovation, which if made accurate enough, could spare a lot of queues away at clubs and so on.

It can give an estimate, but still, 10 years is a big time frame to guess a persons age.

Very true.

Plus the sensationalist title is a joke - this is for automation or apps, not liquor stores. I doubt those that coded this think people are incapable of discerning an age range so wide - it's not hard to guess "that person looks between 20 and 30 years of age, probably 23". rolleyes.gif

As for the liquor reference... I've bought booze for underage kids for years and had people do the same for me. As far as I'm concerned, apart from establishments, legal drinking age is so easy to get around it isn't even a law...

Might be a problem for the majority Asians. Their skin remains so young even into their 40s.

What was that movie where the guy had to replace his eyes to avoid Detection in the futuristic world where Retina Scans are the norm?

This is great untill it as assimilated by the Eventual Rampant AI that will destroy our world as we know it.

Will be just like that Airport Scanner thingy that shows your penix and boobies, those pictures were put online - who says I want my ugly Mug all over the internet lol


And this thing could most likely Never guess my age, probobly say im in my 40's lol
