Use Facial Recognition Software to automatically login to your Computer.

Use Facial Recognition Software to automatically login to your Computer. See the Video Below and try it out. I tried out the Free Version with my old 320x240 Resolution Web Cam on Windows XP and it worked pretty well. It was fun to try out, but I don't really have a need for this kind of Software, right now. Besides, I run Fedora 14 Linux, as my main Operating Systems and this Software Doesn't work on Linux. There may be an Open Source Linux Project of this sort out there too. But, I haven't really looked for one yet...
