Xbox One Kinect won't recognise you after a hair cut

Gamereactor writes: "We've been at it for just over a week now, and with your Xbox One you'll get the brand new Kinect sensor. With this you can get logged in (once you've made all the necessary calibrations) to your Xbox One autmatically as it has your biometrics down. This means the sensor is capable of pairing the player in front of the screen with the appropriate Xbox Live account.

However, if you make some radical changes to your appearance - such as a visit to the barbershop - you won't be recognised. This was something we experienced (see the before and after pictures)." (Xbox One)

So you have to re-introduce yourself to your XBone every 'Movember'? lol :P

I mean it can "Read your Heartbeat", but why can it not recognize your facial features?

But by some funny measure, some people might expect an IR camera to still recognize the major unchangeable (sans plastic surgery) features of your face.

And you know, maybe the world's biggest software company could have thought about that possibility.

I wonder if having a cold effects voice recognition also

Seriously, if you hate the Kinect that much so be it. But don't be ridiculous.

This is kind of like when you see a kid with a toy that does something the other kids are jealous of. Instead of letting the kid have fun with it the haters have to try and ruin it and make it out to be something horrible.

Grow up.

This is actually pertinent information for anyone with a kinect.
KingDadXVI  +   430d ago
Yeah, I imagine there are so many people out there that are going to run out and get a Fro like that cut down to nothing. Get real.
mydyingparadiselost  +   430d ago
Of course. Women never go from long to short hair, men never grow beards, we all look the same everyday from birth to death.

This is something anyone with a kinect should be aware of, I would want to know why my kinect isn't recognizing me, or make sure to undo any facial recognition locks BEFORE going and getting a makeover.

What happen if my hair grows?
SilentNegotiator  +   430d ago
What are the chances of that happening?

Im sorry, its over. Im leaving!

You're breaking with her?
Deathdeliverer  +   430d ago
Damn that's some accuracy.

"Kinect can recognize each users face and log each person in accordingly"
