First day of the WCS—against all odds and after two months of grueling development work, an impossible deadline, and 15 hour days—we delivered and deployed the world’s first standalone, wearable face recognition system.

It is my humble hope that this small contribution of ours will help to make our cities, communities, and public gatherings safer.
