Recently, in the city district of Zhengzhou, Henan Province (PRC), you can meet police officers in unusual sunglasses. The fact is that these are smart glasses equipped with software to identify and track wanted persons.
The gadget glasses developed by LLVision Technology Co. were taken into “weapons” by the Chinese police last year. At the moment, law enforcement officers with their help identify suspicious persons on the eve of the Chinese New Year at railway stations and airports, which has already allowed to detain more than 25 people with forged documents.
