LockFace: simplified the verification methods

It’s amazing how much webcam technology has taken off, hasn’t it? I mean, if a webcam can recognize a certain code for an augmented reality program, then I don’t see why it cannot recognize a face.

This is what Futen, a Japanese company, has realized as well. Their Lockface program is a USB key that can be stuck into any USB port and then works better than a biometric scanner. Lockface as it uses your face to make sure you are the right user, rather than a fingerprint.

Lockface is designed to work right out of the box, without using any separate software. It starts by taking a number of pictures of the user, and then using this data to verify the user when he or she logs on again.
