With all these tech companies bragging about their facial recognition software and casinos hyping their algorithms up it would be hilarious if there was a simple solution to messing up facial recognition.

And naturally there are entrepreneurs who now see the alternate market. A market to cater to those who DONT want to be recognized or followed by software.

It seems it might be as simple as wearing a T-shirt.

Interesting.
Although, I don't see boomers or GenX customers embracing and supporting biometrics in a casino environment anytime soon.
Pretty sure the casino industry is going to die right along with the boomers anyhow.

Highly unlikely. They will just adapt to what the younger generations want.

see "skill based gaming" or AKA "video games" :)

This t shirt is cool but won't affect facial recognition... only object recognition. I am surprised though that someone hasn't designed a hat with IR LED's or some other tech that obscures your face when viewed through a camera... who knows, might be out there and i just haven't seen it yet?

Younger generations seem to like keeping their money. They are more astute than their parents and grandparents.
Adapting to someone that just says no is kind of hard to do.

I'm pretty sure it's out there. Baseball cap with little lights embedded in the brim. Saw something about it a few months back.

IMO, the best move seems to me to be if you get some stage putty and change the shape and width of the size of the bridge of your nose. Supposedly one of the things it measures is the distance between your eyes and their relative position to each other. Mess up that interior measurement on your face, and it won't match.

Might want to combine it with glasses so the putty is less obvious.

They won't say "no" enough to put casinos out of business.

They've already shifted their business model in the last 10-20 years to appeal to club-goers and foodies. If they have to shift again to whatever the next big thing is, they will. The casino industry is not dying in our lifetime.

Never said they were going out of business. I do expect significant declines though. This decade may have been the last of significant expansion. Sands is already waffling on making investments in Japan.
Clubbing and foodies don't support casino gambling.

Younger generations are living with their folks longer.

That means less concern about bills as you remain under your parents roof.

As they go out into the world, they will come to realize the financial difficulties of making it on your own.

Without doing any type of scientific statistical analysis, my observation is that cash strapped people having trouble paying bills gamble more because they dream about gambling solving their problems.

So as the younger generations get older they will get roped into the misconceptions of gambling just the same
