Kinect-like face recognition, touchless control tipped for Surface Mini


The rumored Surface Mini Windows tablet that wasn’t introduced alongside the new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 earlier this year is still coming, a report from Chinese publication WPDang (via UnwiredView) claims, adding that some Kinect-like functionality will be included. Apparently the Surface Mini will be launched in 2014 and feature an 8-inch display with Full HD 1080p resolution and an Intel Bay Trail processor under the hood. Most interestingly, the Surface Mini is said to include face recognition and touchless control features, even though the bigger Surface 2 models lack such features. The Surface Mini will be able to recognize the face of the user, as well as hand movements, which would be used to trigger certain actions.
