Freedom Shield
5 points by nickbild 3 months ago | hide | past | web | favorite
The freedom of assembly is widely considered to be a basic human right and is codified in documents such as the First Amendment to the US Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. However, there are many places in the world where this right is not respected.

We are living in a time where surveillance cameras, with the ability to uniquely identify individuals through machine learning algorithms, are exceedingly common. Such cameras can be used to deter people from exercising their rights.

Freedom Shield was developed to protect the rights of individuals to peaceably assemble and petition their government while:

- Blocking their face from surveillance cameras to prevent identification. - Being invisible to onlookers, so as to not draw attention from state police forces in the way a mask would.
