awesome news! Theater it! Too bad wrinkles can't do the same. We may end up wearing burkas in the future...not to follow Muslim fashion, but to have our own privacy.
Stores are using face recognition to see how we consumers react to displays, etc. And then scheme to screw with our minds like a pack of Pavlovian dogs. This sucks just as much as government spying.

It's starting to feel like all those William Gibson novels he wrote ages ago. He did try to warn us.

When I traveled a few weeks ago I went through a machine that looks at my passport picture and then at me. It's good that you get through the immigration process more quickly. But always slightly worrying that it obviously doesn't look at hair style, how droopy you are after a long flight, even whether you've got your glasses on or off or any of the ways humans recognize each other.
