That's the claim by some folks. It doesn't pickup dark skin tones very well.
No. People alway make something ridicious out of basic technology because they do not fully understand it. Kinect work on the principle of detecting infrared light (heat). It does not matter what color your skin is, we all generate heat. It uses facial recognition software to identify the users and log them in system. As always technology comes with it limitations; Consumer Reports was only stating that Kinect works better in a well lit environment to pick up those facial features for the recognition software to work better. There is no racism here.
That is one of the most unintentionally funny titles ever!!
I suppose racism exists anywhere someone wants to look deep for it. It's likely just a camera glitch, they'll work it out one day.
Thats like asking if the colored ink in tattoos is racist because it doesn't show up well on darker skinned people. I agree with warchild the title definitely got my attention!
Whilst obviously not racist, the concept is still hilariously funny, haha great find
thats just stupid.. it could be that its having a bit of trouble recognizing darker skin for face recognition. Or people might have poor lighting conditions in the room. It has to be bright for it to work decently

My son just told me he wants a device that he can speak into like a tape recorder that converts what he says into bullet points (a list) and dates it. Something that does exactly that probably exists but I wouldn't know anything about it. Does anyone have a suggestion or two?

I can't believe my good fortune. Found a sweet little digital dictation device on discount at the grocery store of all places for $25. I've been wanting to try out using dictation in my hubbing, but it looks very complicated, and I am a former tech writer to boot. Will I have to buy the Dragon...
