Twitter Freaked Out by iPhone X’s New Face Scan Technology
Apple announced a new iPhone feature that lets it scan your face and make 3D image models from it. Apple has two uses for the technology right now, called FaceDepth. One, it replaces the fingerprint scanner on iPhones with a face scanner, called FaceID, which lets users unlock their phones. Two, users can make and control 3D emojis called “animojis.” When illustrating the features, Apple showed a bunch of floating faces and rows of 3D animal emojis looming toward the audience on a pitch black canvas. It’s the stuff of nightmares. Twitter was weirded out. It drew some comparisons to science fiction movies and TV shows. Not necessarily in a good way. “One more thing … AGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!” Tweeted one person. “in the future your phone watches YOU,” read another. “A girl has no iPhone X,” another person tweeted. “Finally, a phone for furries, as Steve Jobs always envisioned,” a clever tweet read. You’ll be able to use FaceID on the iPhone X, which ships on November 3.
