Google picks up face to unlock patentLick your lips in anticipation, all of you fans of the Android mobile operating system. Word on the street has it that Google has just picked up a pure win of the face-to-unlock patent which is said to enable multiple users to share just one “computing device.” To put things into a nutshell, all one needs to do is point your face in the direction of the built-in camera, where you will then be able to gain access to your personal profile. Should it be time to shake a leg and move, then someone else is able to do just what you did and take over your place. Does it tickle your fancy that there could very well be some sort of official multi-user support down the road in a future version of Android that is smackingly delicious? Perhaps, or perhaps not, but you can be sure that Google is not just going to collect patents for fun unless they have something in store for the masses.
