FTFA: The system was developed by Srihari Nelakuditi, associate professor of computer science and engineering at the University of South Carolina, along with three colleagues at Duke University, He Wang, Xuan Bao, and Romit Roy Choudhury.

Duke sucks so bad it makes me want to Romit.

I don't know about the guys from Gilligan's Island, but, judging from the pants, men lost all external genitalia around the 23rd century in Star Trek's universe.

Oh, and the app is silly.

Makes sense to me.  Back in the long ago, I was in my apartment building's laundry room looking for an open washer and immediately recognized one machine's contents as one of my roommate's clothes.  [I'm not going to bother trying to clean up that grammar.]  Even tho I knew he was still unconscious from the previous night's drinking and he couldn't have beat me to the laundry room, I knew they were his clothes.  I put them in a dryer, then brought them back to the apartment.  Turns out he'd puked on himself and threw his clothes in the washer (apparently walking back to the apartment naked) before passing out.

As for finding specific people in a crowd, there are ways to do that.  One time, I was with a group of friends at the entrance to an amusement park.  We were waiting for the last guy to show up, saying we should have made a sign or something so he could find us easily.  Then we simultaneously saw the top of a head bobbing just above the crowd.  "There he is!" in quadraphonic.  What made it really funny/interesting was the fact that he'd changed both his hair color and style dramatically and, despite none of us knowing that and only being able to see the new hair, we recognized him immediately by his walk and the way it made his head move.

Will it be able to tell me if this girl at Comic Con is Cos Playing for fun (along with the probable interest of meeting/talking to follow male and female geeks and/or nerds) or just there to get noticed by the people with the big cameras? (just for the sole reason of starting or adding to a modeling portfolio)
