A new smartphone app called SceneTap employs facial-detection software and cameras placed strategically in bars and nightclubs to tell users the age and gender makeup of an establishment they’re thinking of visiting.
Is it an invasion of privacy for your neighborhood watering hole to install cameras and scan your face?
Let’s be honest, says Violet Blue at ZDNet, this “bro-app” is designed to help “brotards” get liquored up and go straight to the bars “with the most chicks in them,” which is “sure to make women feel a little more like hunted prey” than they do already. News of the launch in San Francisco provoked so many complaints that several bars that had planned to participate backed out.
Makes me not want to go out again ever. ICK.
