    A small camera fitted to the glasses can capture 400 facial images per second and send them to a central computer database storing up to 13 million faces...
    The camera will generally be used to scan faces in crowds up to 50 metres (164ft) away but can be adjusted, if searching for a specific target, to recognise faces as far as 12 miles away...
