Read this post at Ars Technica about the research into clothing that will trick facial recognition systems, the idea being that rather than disguise one’s face, the clothing would have a design that would exploit the features of the software and confusing the system. This quote in particular leapt out at me:

“I have a full belief that we actually probably all own things that may exhibit some of the principles that we want to see in blocking image detection, or gait detection, or even facial detection,” she continued. “And if you give people the ability to test it by themselves at home, and to do a sort of trial and error on their own, it can make them realize that they’re smart enough to figure their stuff out. So we don’t have to rely forever on experts to be the people that save us from surveillance.”

The whole thing is worth a read.
