Face-Recognition Magic Comes to Mobile

(From WWJ Video Program No. 58, Apr. 10, 2003)

(You can only see the preview on the GLOCOM Platform)

Sure, you can access your bank account balance and buy stuff via celly, but what happens if you loose your handset and some bad dude gets your PIN number? And remember: in Japan, tens of thousands of keitais are lost each year. But one thing the baddies (except for certain famous movie serial cannibals) can't steal is your face - and today we show you an innovative face-recognition system that's been ported to mobile phones. "Kaopass" works well and demonstrates one possibility for keitai security in the future.
