Will Apple’s TV Have Face-Recognition Technology?
“Some new details are trickling in about the rumored Apple HDTV, courtesy of the blog Cult of Mac, which says it has a source that has seen a prototype. You know the drill: file this under “rumor”–albeit a somewhat credible one.”
This is the brand new Samsung Smart TV. It packs quite a punch and makes me wonder what Apple’s Rumored TV will now consist of since this TV has everything Apple’s TV was said to have. This TV is pretty cool, but being a fanboy I’d probably buy Apple’s first. The ES8000 has motion or voice control and with face recognition that detects who’s watching via the TV’s built-in camera. It has Skype built in and will also possibly boast an “App Store” to download different Apps and possibly Kintect style games. It has a built in web browser and allows you to use your hand as the cursor/pointer. This TV is a game changer but that makes me wonder if Apple will change the game more? How can Apple Possible one-up this TV? What do you guys think?
