How the Samsung Note 7's iris scanning system works

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] So delicious. What's up? Brian Tong here with here Googlicious for everything Google week and pack side of the show. So next week Tuesday, August the 2nd, the Samsung big reveal for the Note 7 but new leaks Continue to poor out from Android authority, this time it's the lock screen and security settings that shows irises as one of the options, but their disclaimer also details how the iris scanning may not work if you're wearing eyeglasses or sunglasses, Duh on that one. Or either, color contact lenses, and even circular contact lenses. Now if you've had lasik eye surgery, it might not work as well. And you'll need to hold it at eye level in well lit conditions. With all those caveats it'll be very interesting to see how well it actually performs. Now other screen shots from this show off the S Pen Air Command and the ability to video capture specific parts of your screen. But details of the Iris Scanning setup revealed that users will be asked to position their eyes into two circles at a distance of 25 to 35 centimeters From their face. Patently Mobile uncovered the Samsung patent that outlined how it's iris scanner works. Now the iris recognition system uses three lenses to capture the image and then checks the iris of the user based on the. On the image it's generated, and will also use images of the user's face for additional information. Right now it might not be fast enough to replace a fingerprint scanner but we'll see how it all plays out. And in the most important Samsung news of the day, the SamsungOne font has become the company's universal typeface for all of its products. Like Apple and Google Samsung now has their own font. So to be important in this world, you need a font. Everyone's doing it. Well, that and Pokemon GO. In Google news, Google has lost the title as World's Favorite COmpany to Apple, but on a technicality. FutureBrand takes the 100 largest companies by their market And has 3,000 consumers and industry professionals, questions, and then ranks them by what they call perception strength and not their financial strength. Google dropped all the way to 21 overall because it's now part of Alphabet. No one really knows Alphabet, Now people still call them Google like even in this show. Number two was Microsoft, number three was Samsung, and number four was Walt Disney. Google's phone app gets a nice update that will now warn you when you're getting potential spam calls. The incoming call will show a red screen and label it as suspected spam caller. It's only available for Nexus and Android One devices right now with the latest update on the Google Play Store. Also Google Maps is getting the few visual changes and cleaning up their look, it's subtle the Google is taking away road outlines which allows. For a cleaner look and it's a good thing. Typography for points of interest is more distinguishable on the map and it stands out, they've also added in orange shading to areas of interest where there are activities to do and a new color scheme to help you easily differentiate between man made or natural feature so Let's be honest it's Global news week. But this might be my favorite story of the week and especially from my comic book readers on Android devices. the Google Play Books app is introducing a new feature called Bubble Zoom. And it's rich and cool using Google's objection recognition. Tech. It can now recognize speech bubbles in comics and Bubble Zoom expands the speech bubbles with a tap on your mobile device while keeping the art exactly the same making it easier to read. Even on a tablet there are times where this comes in handy and this really needs to be everywhere. All right that's gonna do it for this week's show.
