Navigation Links Announces Beta Release Of "NameTag" The First Real-Time Facial Recognition App For Google Glass

DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS, Nev., Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The real world is about to become a much more connected place. Utilizing some of the most accurate facial recognition software in the world, NameTag can spot a face using Google Glass' camera, send it wirelessly to a server, compare it to millions of records and in seconds return a match complete with a name, additional photos and social media profiles., the developer of NameTag, is also currently creating technology to allow the scanning of profile photos from dating sites such as, and The technology will allow users to scan photos against the more than 450,000 entries in the National Sex Offender Registry and other criminal databases.

"I believe that this will make online dating and offline social interactions much safer and give us a far better understanding of the people around us," said NameTag's creator Kevin Alan Tussy.  "It's much easier to meet interesting new people when we can simply look at someone, see their Facebook, review their LinkedIn page or maybe even see their dating site profile. Often we were interacting with people blindly or not interacting at all. NameTag on Google Glass can change all that."

No longer will social media be limited to the screens of desktops, tablets and smartphones.  With the NameTag app running on Google Glass a user can simply glance at someone nearby and instantly see that person's name, occupation and even visit their Facebook, Instagram or Twitter profiles in real-time.

Tussy explains, "People will soon be able to login to and choose whether or not they want their name and information displayed to others.  It's not about invading anyone's privacy; it's about connecting people that want to be connected. We will even allow users to have one profile that is seen during business hours and another that is only seen in social situations. NameTag can make the big, anonymous world we live in as friendly as a small town."

NameTag is currently available on Glass for Beta testers and expects its website and app to launch in Q1 2014 and hopes it can be officially available to Google Glass users as well.

"Making Real-Time Facial Recognition work on Glass hasn't been easy, but we did it.  Now, the question isn't if we will support Glass; it's will Google support us?" said Tussy.

Google has announced that facial recognition will not yet be supported for Glass; undoubtedly due to pressure from privacy groups but believes that by providing applications with such vast societal benefits, Google will eventually reconsider.

"There will be many providers of augmented reality headsets and even if facial recognition is not supported by some, I'm confident that there will be solutions for such limitations. We are not publishing any information about of our financiers or investors at this time but I will say that we are involved with some very well-respected individuals and Venture Funds," said Tussy.
