Hey, phone phriends! The new Android operating system (awesomely nicknamed "Ice Cream Sandwich") offers a facial-recognition feature called “Face Unlock.” It allows mobile device owners to gain access to their locked devices through a quick facial scan.
This is not new technology, but it still rare in home electronics. Will facial recognition grant us freedom from remembering passwords? Probably not, but I still think it’s cool. I just hope I don’t have to update my face every six months.
