Login to Windows via Face Recognition Blink! Software
May 7, 2010 | Filed under Software;
The normal way of logging in to Windows is via password and some laptops comes with fingerprint reader which enables the user to login using fingerprint. For the first time ever, Luxand has created a software called Blink! which allows user to login to computer using face recognition. This is a more convenient way of logging in compared to typing a password. The algorithm that has been implemented in the Blink! face recognition is very advanced up to a stage where it can even recognize that it is you even if you have a new haircut, swapped glasses for contacts, shave off beard and mustaches, applied makeup or dyed your hair, Blink! will let you in to your PC no matter what.
It is easy to implement face recognition login using Blink!. After installation, you will be asked to create a face template where you have to first look at the webcam, and then slowly turn your face from right to left and vice versa until Blink! completes creating the face template. Then you will need to key in the windows login password and it’s done.
Before using Blink!, make sure that the user account is password protected. If the user didn’t set a password, Windows will automatically login bypassing the face recognition. Blink! is free and is compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7 32bit only.
