(KGTV) - Are political protesters in Hong Kong using wearable projectors to avoid being caught by facial recognition technology?

No.

The face projector seen in a viral video was an art project created by students at a school in the Netherlands.

One of the students who worked on the project said the wearable projectors were never manufactured and were never intended for political purposes.
