They used it on warships, so why not use it on your face? Adam Harvey explains one of the ways to protect yourself from privacy compromising technologies -- or really invasive advertising.

CV Dazzletm is camouflage from computer vision (CV). It is a form of expressive interference that combines makeup and hair styling (or other modifications) with face-detection thwarting designs. The name is derived from a type of camouflage used during WWI, called Dazzle, which was used to break apart the gestalt-image of warships, making it hard to discern their directionality, size, and orientation. Likewise, the goal of CV Dazzletm is to break apart the gestalt of a face, or object, and make it undetectable to computer vision algorithms, in particular face detection.
