One of the applications is called Cloud Camouflage. This app let's you take as many selfies as you can take, without ever revealing your face. Your pictures will be safe from all automatic face recognition software on the web and on the streets.
Now this app is relatively simple and the app Cam-Camouflage takes this principle a step further. Cam-Camouflage enables the user to stay invisible or to be camouflaged for every camera he comes across/appears on. It works like this: the user has a small transmitter and a profile. On the profile he chooses the looks of the camouflage. There are a few standard options like animal faces, celebrity faces, geometric shapes or even invisible for people who really don't want to be seen.
But you can also upload your own images to customise your digital look.
The transmitter is also a sensor that detects any cameras in your surroundings. When a camera is detected, the device 'hacks' into that camera and replaces your image with the image you chose in your profile.
Now this application brings along a lot of questions, the main question being: Is this even legal? The answer depends on who you're asking this question. The creators and users of Cam-Camouflage say that they have a right to protect their privacy and remain anonymous in the public domain. While non-users believe of fear that it is, however, illegal. Under certain circumstances using the app can be seen as obstruction of justice. They also fear it will be abused by criminals to get away with crimes.
John Smith, one of the creators of Cam-Camouflage says; "Why should the average innocent citizen sacrifice his privacy for the few criminals that walk among us? By the laws our ancestors wrote, we are entitled to our privacy."
