The first generation of security features introduced by Apple and Google last year were meant to make it harder for hackers to steal your information.
Now, two companies are developing devices that could keep your data secure even if you’re not wearing a mask.
The makers of the devices, called Cell Phone Senses, announced Monday that they had raised $4.5 million in a Series A funding round.
The money will be used to make and sell a range of security products including a facial recognition camera, facial recognition fingerprint reader, an eye scanner and an ear scanner.
The companies say they have a “truly revolutionary” product that will be the future of mobile security.
The new cell phones are designed to capture images of your face and other body parts, then store them on the phone and remotely download them.
They could be used by criminals or terrorists, or even by the government to collect information on your private life.
They’re being built to protect your privacy and security.
“We’re talking about an actual security camera that will capture you, not just the image that is captured, but the context in which that image is captured,” said the company’s CEO, Adam Riedel.
Cell Phone Sights can also detect the presence of people in your vicinity, or to track your movements.
The company also plans to use the technology to protect people’s phones from thieves.
“You know that your phone’s been stolen, you know that someone has been watching it and you’re getting a text message,” Riedl said.
The Cell Phone Sense security camera uses “the next generation of facial recognition technology,” and is the latest addition to a group of technologies being developed by the companies.
The facial recognition system is based on a system developed by Microsoft, the same company that developed Microsoft’s facial recognition cameras.
Cell Phone Sense also uses an advanced computer vision system that can analyze images of people’s faces, the company said.
It will also use facial recognition to identify objects like keys, wallets and credit cards.
“We’ve been working on this technology for many years,” Redel said.
“We think that with the new generation of technologies, it’s a new frontier.”
The first generation cell phone cameras that Apple and Microsoft developed last year.
But the new Cell Phone Sensors will also have the advantage of being able to be worn by someone with a mask, Riedll said.
The technology will be available in “late spring or early summer,” Rhedel said, but not before “a consumer launch” of the Cell Phone Sight in early 2018.
“It’s the beginning of a revolution,” Riddell said.
What’s more, Riddel said the Cell Sights will be much more secure than the facial recognition software that’s being developed.
“It’s going to be much harder to get a cell phone to store a photo, so that’s going the other way,” Rydel said of facial identification.
“The technology is designed to be more secure and it’s going, ‘Hey, this is a little bit more advanced than I thought.’
The Cell Sight, Rydell said, will “work for both people who wear masks and people who don’t wear masks.”
Cell Phone Sight will be priced at $150,000 and can be bought with a pair of ear buds or a pair for $100.
Riddels hopes to have the technology available in the next year or two, he said.
