    yeah, in the beginning we will definitely have to purchase another product. but i'm cool with doing that. i've been using face-logon software for years now, on my laptop. but the thing is, it sucks when lighting changes. just will not recognize you in different light. i have had to make setups in the dark, in the med light and in bright light. and then it works better, but still has its problems from time to time. the idea with ir, is that this should over come these common problems. at least i'm hoping.
    Yeah, but will it recognize me in my various glasses? I have Bifocals, Readers and Computer Glasses and depending on what I've been doing, I may not always have on the ones I need. I can even see the screen without any of them, although it will give me eye strain after awhile. Will it recognize me with my headphones on?

    Shucks, Windows 10 starts up plenty fast for me as it is.

    Windows Hello requires specialized hardware, including fingerprint reader, illuminated IR sensor or other biometric sensors.
    I maybe setup for Hello after all. I have an IR sensor and my webcam can detect motion. I thought Hello required windows pro though, something change?

    I wish too, Magilla, but we'll probably have to buy something more to hang onto our computers.
    Yes, after reading the link included in Brink's message, it looks now like Intel has the market cornered. We can hope for an expanded offering at least with competitors entering the arena.

    Good luck, Groze, but your IR sensor must still have the Intel technology inside before it will work with Hello. And I'm pretty sure we can forget our webcams. I have one that's quite respectable, but again, without the Intel technology inside to make it work with Hello, it's a lost cause.

    Having said that, there are other ways to make your IR sensor work without Hello. I'd go for that first, since Hello isn't available yet.

    I have an idea! Why don't we all search the Internet for anything that has Intel Real Sense in its technology? At least then we'd know "yes or no" whether something will work with Hello.

    Well, I didn't find anything more than what the article indicated.

    Sounds to me like they are going after small businesses that have a couple of employees using the same computer and one e-mail address.

    Not sure. In the following demo, during setup it says "...if you wear glasses, select improve recognition to go through the setup again with and without them. This will make sure you're recognised either way"

    Setup starts at around 6:33:

    The 'Improve Recognition' button doesn't grey out after he does it twice, so it'd be interesting to know whether it's necessary to do it for all glasses or not, and hats, and hats with glasses, and hats with glasses and earphones... lol.

    Yahr. The camera used in the above video uses an RGB (color) camera, an infra-red camera and an infra-red laser projector for it to work.

    Intel also do another one with both left and right IR sensors. I haven't had much time to read about it yet, but presumably they're going to allow people to scan objects in 3D, or for augmented reality purposes. Maybe both, which will be cool.

    Windows 10 starts up about 20 times faster than 7. I hope to say hello with a webcam maybe.
