Scientists at The University of Manchester have developed a facial recognition system for cell phones that can track a user’s features in real-time. This technology accurately tracks a number of areas around the face such as the eyes, mouth, nose and jaw line. While facial recognition is already used in laptops and other gadgets, it’s the first time that such as a system has been developed for smartphones, which can potentially be used as a replacement for passwords and PINs for activating and performing financial transactions on the phone.
