One major issue that lots of people have with trying glasses online is wondering what they’ll look like on your face.

At Glasses Direct we have the most advanced facial recognition software in the UK industry on our site – which we will be developing. Rather than you having to put glasses on your face, our software recognises your facial features and then fits a 3-D model of the glasses onto your face at the appropriate angle.

I grabbed a couple of photos of famous faces – particularly various incarnations of Arnie – to see how it would cope.

All of these have had the glasses added by our software on our site.

Our lead developer found it even worked for his cat, but our head of IT had less joy with a picture of a dog.
