To cope up with video game addiction, tech giant Tencent has launched a facial-recognition system, “Midnight Patrol”. It is to stop minors from gaming at night.

The initiative will prevent people under 18 from playing between 22:00 and 08:00. The system is already active in more than 60 of Tencent’s games. It works by scanning the faces of players to check their age.

"Anyone who refuses or fails face verification will be treated as a minor, included in the anti-addiction supervision of Tencent’s game health system and kicked offline," the company said.
