The app that helps to recognise your friends and family

Researchers in Singapore have developed a smart glasses app for those with dementia and the elderly.

The app has been tested on a prototype Google Glass platform. User trials are expected to take place within the next two years.

Nicholas Fearn spoke to Dr Lim Joo Hwee, one of the scientists behind the project.
