Incognito is a mask that is contoured to the face, aimed to protect users from facial-recognition algorithms used in modern public cameras.

The proper arrangement and size of details on the mask cause the characteristic elements of the human face to be disturbed. Algorithms recognising the face in which the cameras are equipped are not able to read it correctly.

This project has been longlisted in the wearable design project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.

Designer: Noma Studio
Project: Incognito
