ARTEC ID: 3D FACE RECOGNITION SYSTEM TO EASILY LOG IN TO YOUR COMPUTER How many passwords do you think you can remember, and are your pass- words secure enough? The average Briton manages more than 19 online accounts that require a password, a recent study from Cyber Streetwise shows. Over a third of those ques- tioned admitted that they do not create strong passwords because they strug- gle to recall them. To get the problem solved, how about trying a totally different approach: no passwords anymore – let your com- puter recognize you by your face. All you need for this is to scan your face with an Intel F200 sensor built into your comput- er and the Artec ID 3D face recognition software to manage the login process. How Does It Work? To set up Artec ID, follow three simple steps: open the Artec ID application while sitting 30-50cm away from your computer; press "Scan" and keep still while the program captures your face; and enter your system username and password and press "Save." Now every time you turn on your computer, the program will compare your face with that on the database, and if it matches, it will log you in. When you walk away from your computer, the screen will lock. Sit before your com- puter again and the screen will unlock automatically so you can resume your work. Artec ID uses unique 3D recognition algorithms developed by the team of engineers that also make top-end handheld 3D scanners for professional use and a consumer-oriented full- body 3D scanner, Shapify Booth, which has taken the self- ie frenzy to a new level, starting to offer 3D portraits in place of usual photos. Shapify Booth takes a short 12 seconds to scan a person or a couple from all angles, and then it automatically turns the collected data into a shapie, the client's exact 3D copy, down to the minute detail such as hair curls and folds on the clothes, that can be viewed on a computer screen. The file produced by Shapify software can be sent to a 3D printer to make a very special keepsake, a mini-me figurine. Clients can choose to be scanned in any kind of outfit, from the ordinary jeans and shirt to a wedding dress and a cosplay costume. Figurines can be finished in traditional thermoplas- tics, and Artec also offers to make 3D scans into bobble-heads, fridge magnets, busts and laser- engraved crystals. The company will also launch a Shapify for home-users service for computers featuring the front-facing F200 Intel sensor. Artec's flagship 3D scanning, editing and processing soft- ware, Artec Studio 10 now supports the rear-facing Intel sensor, R200, currently available in the new HP Spectre laptop, and is perfect for students or people at home to start exploring the world of 3D scanning, achieving excellent entry-level results. All of Artec's 3D scanning products are on show at booth #72523 at Sands, Tech West. For more information, visit www.artec3d.com or email info@ artec-group.com.
