A new device has been designed to help police spot criminals through buildings using infrared technology.

Golden-I, developed by Kopin Corporation, is a device that operates by voice commands and head movements to allow police to access vital information, according to the Daily Mail.

The software that tailors the product to police, Police Pro, was created by Ikanos Consulting.

The Police Pro application provides real-time situational awareness in the field by allowing officers to record incidents for later analysis and view live video feeds from other Golden-i headsets, according to the article.

The system, which is set to be tested this year, can also identify suspects using facial recognition technology , scans license plates, receives alerts from motion sensors, and can access GPs coordinates.
