We’ve all been in a situation before where we meet someone who looks strikingly familiar but we can’t remember their names or who they are. This socially awkward situation could be a thing of the past with a pair of these high-tech goggles.

The glasses can scan and recognize faces based on their Facebook profile photos. Using augmented reality, the goggles then provides the wearer with with that person’s personal details such as name, which school they went to, and their latest status update.

The goggles were created by Vergence Labs, a startup from Standford engineer Jon Rodriguez and UCLA MBA Erick Miller. The device is still a prototype and runs on the Android OS.
