** Facial recognition technology starts at 45 seconds in…

Buying an energy efficient TV and turning off the TV whenever you leave the room, no matter how short the time are just two things we can do to save electricity. A new application of facial recognition technology by Hitachi will soon give us another choice with a futuristic flare. The technology was shown off at CEATEC. As you can gather, the facial recognition tracks where your eyes are focused. Focusing on the TV keeps it on. Once your eyesight moves to some other object for a set period of time, the TV automatically turns off. Pretty nifty huh? Still, there’s plenty of times I’d like to leave the TV on when I leave the room. Even if I can’t see it, I can still hear it. Still, a cool use of facial recognition for sure. One that I hope will come sooner rather than later.
