Ever heard of a T-shirt that’s designed to fool Facebook auto-tagging? I’m quiet sure, you didn’t, but now you are about to hear that. Designer Simone C. Niquille has designed a T-shirt called Realface Glamoflage that can confuse Facebook algorithms and hence can fool Facebook auto-tagging.
The Realface Glamoflage T-shirts are plastered with distorted images of celebrity faces such as Michael Jackson and Britney Spears. The distorted faces of celebrity impersonators on the shirts are designed to confuse Facebook algorithms. It’s something like if you have several Michael Jackson faces under your own, what tags will the algorithms come up with? That’s not all. You can also print a T-shirt, having resemblance with other celebrities like Barack Obama. The Barack Obama custom printed T-shirt roughly costs $65.
According to designer Niquille, “An article of clothing that in most cases does not need much consideration in the morning in front of the closet … I was interested in creating a tool for privacy protection that wouldn’t require much time to think in the morning, an accessory that would seamlessly fit in your existing everyday. No adaption period needed.”
Be noted that Niquille has also designed a marketplace called FaceBay, where users can trade faces for use online. For more details, visit Niquille’s website.
