Toshiba has added an interesting feature to its new Satellite notebooks that allows users to log onto their notebook without typing or swiping a finger. The new Satellite U400, M300, A300, and P300 notebooks are all equipped with Toshiba Face Recognition software.

This software uses the built-in webcam to recognize the users face and log them into the notebook automatically. The software stores images of authorized users’ faces and logs them into personal accounts on the computer. The software will allow multiple users of one system to log into individual accounts as well.

"Toshiba prides itself on making laptops that stand out in the marketplace," said Jeff Barney, vice president of marketing, Digital Products Division, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. "With the addition of face recognition, the newly designed Satellite models have yet another great feature that showcases Toshiba's passion for creating innovative technologies that are equally enjoyable to use."
