At the opening keynote of Computex 2015, Intel executives spent a brief moment on stage demonstrating how well things work, and how secure it actually is. Using a face mask to try and 'spoof' the cameras into thinking you're someone else just won't work, as shown in this short video clip.
The Intel RealSense camera technology goes beyond being a simple webcam, with aspects to sense depth, too, and the effects are impressive. We've seen Microsoft demo Windows Hello at Build, and this is every bit as impressive. There seems to be absolutely no lag whatsoever, with the PC unlocking virtually instantly after it sees your face.
It's very cool stuff, and we've already heard from Dell that some of its new laptops launching soon will have RealSense on board, with Windows Hello being a prime use case.
A retail listing for the Surface Pro 8 has appeared online, and we believe the listed specs could be accurate. Either way, Microsoft's reveal event for new Surfaces kicks off this Wednesday, and we'll find out the truth then.
New FCC documents released on Friday, September 17, reveal some further information about Microsoft’s forthcoming Surface Duo 2 Android smartphone. The documents confirm 5G, NFC, Wi-Fi 6 and mentions “Wireless Power Transfer.” While it could be Qi wireless charging, there could be a more likely answer about what that is referring to.
