I got a request about how to get the Lenovo face recognition technology on a normal laptop. I searched the internet and got this great piece of software named as Blink. This gives option to scan your face to Login into Windows 7 and vista systems. This software is a cool one and interface is great.
Blink from Luxand is a freeware that does job what Lenovo face recognition software do. The software uses your webcam to read a face, match it against a pre-stored collection of users and log in the right account. This has a very Sleek and neat interface which is the main attraction.
Once the software is installed, you need to configure it. You feed your face details so that it can scan the details. Setting everything up is simple and easy and fast. Now everything is done, the software simply goes down to the system tray where it will continue to run. You may also access settings from the tray icon.
Next time you’re logging into Windows, Blink with automatically enable your webcam and get ready for login. Just sit normally in front of the camera and you’re logged in, no passwords needed.
Blink’s recognition algorithm also compensates for changed hairstyles, glasses or contact lenses. It also keeps tabs on who logged in when, and stores a complete Login history with captured images to catch potential identity thieves, and to keep a record of activity. These are accessible through Settings. That is why the quality and features remain same as Lenovo’s software.
Blink works with Windows Vista and 7 only, 32-bit versions. Its memory signature weighs in at approximately 30 MB. Although obvious, it also needs a PC-cam or webcam to work.
