Volker Blaz & Thomas Vetter - 3D morphable model for the synthesis of 3D faces

Ah-hahahahah, this is from 2006, courtesy of Volker Blaz & Thomas Vetter @ Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Tübingen, Germany.

Imagine what they have now, and how it might be used IN REALTIME to subvert any surveillance state apparatus. One can imagine 'covert assets' already having as many different 3D facial morph files to combat enemy CCTV at airports etc. as they have different passports to fool border checks.

I guess, though I didn't realise where my mind was taking me, this relates to the previous post Iris Scanners Create Most Secure City in that 'once it's digitised' it's infinitely manipulable.

So, Iris Scanners WON'T Create Secure Cities, as CCTV will never find wealthily-connected criminal assets.

In fact, the rather obvious summary of all this must be, "Surveillance State is just a global game for you, the corporate pawns, to be sacrificed in; yeah like patsies."
