The famous saying that “two heads are better than one” might not be such a good thing in this intriguing experiment, carried out by Forbes journalist Thomas Brewster.

With facial recognition security becoming increasingly prevalent in modern gadgets, Brewster and his team decided to put this technology to the test using four android models—the LG G7 ThinQ, Samsung S9, Samsung Note 8, OnePlus 6—and the iPhone X.

Using himself as a model, Brewster had his head 3D-printed by UK-based Backface, where a life-sized replica was ready within several days for over £300 (US$380).

In the case of each android smartphone, the pseudo head was able to dupe their facial recognition technologies to unlock the gadget, though with varied levels of ease. Brewster notes that only the iPhone X didn’t fall prey to the fake head.
