Brazilian police can scan hundreds of faces per second with a pair of sunglasses

The 2014 World Cup is going to be in Brazil, and preparations are already underway. Security is going to be tight at this event, and I have heard that the police will have something to protect the innocent like Robocop.
The plan is that the police will be wearing sunglasses with cameras that can scan 400 known criminals per second from up to 12 miles away (they are generally optimized for about 150 feet). The sunglasses are wirelessly connected to a database that can compare with the facial profiles of 13 million people, and can check for 46,000 points on the face for an exact match.
Not only can it scan for criminals, but the sunglasses have a screen where an officer can get instructions as far as what to do next. Again, it works like Robocop, without a classified Directive 4.
I have heard that Brazil is pretty advanced in many areas, and I wonder if we will see these high advanced scanner sunglasses when the World Cup happens in three years. I suppose that we will see, but in the meantime, can we arrange it so that these scanner sunglasses can be put on cops around the world?
Better yet, find out a way if these scanners could be put on the eyes of private citizens. I wonder if this would increase the number of citizens arrests.

  1. I’m brazilian so I think that I can say one thing. These glasses will be provided by Santa Claus! Yep the man himself wrote a letter to a local newspaper warning them to wait for him seated because he’ll deliver them as soon as the first snow fall on Rio de Janeiro’s heavy winter… You know I could just keep typing but I got bored… Btw I’m from Rio de Janeiro too so here’s the truth: NOT GONNA HAPPEN not even in hundred or a thousand years…

  2. I know right! With the economy being what it is, only glasses will be given at the 2014 World Cup are sunglasses and even that might be pushing it hahahahahahahahaha!!!!!
