3D Printed Head Fools Android Face Recognition, iPhone X ‚Impenetrable‘

Forbes recently challenged a variety of smartphone face-recognition systems with a 3d printed head modeled after the author’s head.

As tradition would have it, plenty of today’s pranks involve Apple and tech. Here are a few of the more intriguing ones that are making the rounds so far today. Bear in mind that some of the hoaxes may be NSFW, so after-office viewing or headphone donning may be the safest option.
