So…. they program it when they only have half their make-up on?

    Passport control at Perth Airport has facial recognition for Australian Passport holders. I now have a beard whilst my passport photo has me with only a moustache. It still accepted me.
    Some girls do go overboard with eye make-up and lipstick though. I wonder how Apple have handled that problem.

      I don’t think it would make a difference, the points they measure are the same, your eye shape only appears to change when made up, for example, it does not really, nor does your nose shape, or basic face shape. What would worry me, would be getting a black eye, or breaking your nose, but apparently you can still use other methods as well.
      “Face ID is sophisticated enough to work in the dark, and to learn your face under different circumstances — so go ahead and wear those funky glasses or grow that hipster beard.

      Schiller said Apple also worked hard to ensure the technology “can’t be easily spoofed by things like photographs.”

      “They’ve even gone and worked with professional mask makers and makeup artists in Hollywood to protect against these attempts to beat Face ID,” he said. “

        Damn, that’s taking all the fun out of it now 🙁

          Don’t worry you can still decapitate the original owner if you need to open the phone

          I don’t think they need to go that far, really… surgery? Nah, a few good solid whacks with a bat, should do the trick 😉

        What about changing your facial structure with conturing though

        • Goran Mijailović

          It scans in 3D, so you don’t really change your facial structure, it only appears so.

            i see. thought it was just a frontal scan, which would be fooled by makeup easily

            Its not like the last time Apple tried this it didn’t fail big time as it couldn’t recognize very dark skin, (by the way Apple, excellent PR work, it seems everybody forgot that fail, including your engineers (by the way, did they work on the “ready” apple maps too from a few years ago?))which would seem like a pretty obvious thing to test, all face types, all races, all colors. And we think this new one will work no issues.. yep, and the NEW Iphone is worth $1000 too! Enjoy it.

            Nah. It doesn’t just take a picture this time. It has a bunch of different cameras like IR and some distance measuring thing that maps a 3D face for you. Kinda hard to believe it actually works as fast as Apple claims in their presentation…I bet there’s a catch.

        • Tanya Wicht

          You don’t actually change them, they just appear changed. If you look closely, and/or know what you are looking at, you can still see original structure, so can the camera – supposedly.

          • Summer

            Yes, Of course I don’t actually change them 😛 But a camera doesnt know that. you can fool most cameras that way because the software doesnt think itself, but only compares what it perceives against a database

          • Tanya Wicht

            The point being, it is not most cameras.

      Apparently Samsung’s facial recognition software doesn’t work if you switch between glasses on and off.
