C.E.S. 2013: Panasonics TVs Can Recognize a Face
Panasonics new product introductions at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas touch on what is becoming a common theme making your TV do the work of finding shows you want to watch.

Is nothing. Old Soviet technology permit television to watch you.
Helen Thomas bought one.
It turned on and smoke came out of the back.
Just got back from CES.
What a boring thing this is.
Hundreds of big screen TV’s, smart phones and headphones/speakers (rinse and repeat).
There is nothing new under the sun.
I would rather go to a car show.
That top photo is much scarier than the other one.
I know right? A TV with a camera and face recognition tech wired to the net?
What’s wrong with those tinfoilers anyway...SHEESH!!!
Your attempt at sarcasm, Mr. F15 Eagle, (if in fact that is your REAL mane) will be reported to the proper authorities. Please contact the nearest Ministry of Love substation and await further instructions. In the meantime, why not watch a good movie...or some football?
Well go buy one and smile for the camera ;)
Wouldn’t be of use to me as my connection out here kinda sucks, so using web-based features through the tv is a no-go for me. If I lived in town I’d probably be all over it.
Well your smartphone already has all that so....
We’re all going to be stuck with one eventually.
Right, and rfid chips,and we’ll be issued rations, sent to work camps, yadda yadda yadda Obama yadda yadda global masters blah blah.
In related news, Obama halloween masks supplies run low.
Televisions have been “two way” for more than 20 years. While we’re watching TV, someone is watching us.
