Why You So Racist, Hewitt-Packard? [Vid]. The face tracking feature of the Hewitt-Packard web cam will not recognize or track black faces. Engineering fail.

how do we know they didn't just move the camera to follow the chick`s face and left it still when the guy was there? It never actually showed this equipment did it? isn`t it possible they just used a regular like, camcorder or something?

wow, i heard about this in the news and i think that its so stupid that almost everybody (mainly most black people) ***NOT ALL so dont be all "OMG you are a racist"*** think that everything is racist. HP is not racist its the camera, it cant pick up certain distinctions on a black person, so what? are yall gonna say that cameras are racist? come one people, have a little more since than that...besides, if this facial recognition solfware only recongized black people, they would bitch and complain that it is racist too becuz they would start useing it to catch criminals and then since it only sees black people, its racist...

i LOVE the fact that he's chill about it.. it`s not all pissed off like i know some people would be. i kinda like "this is funny..... i`m going to make a joke about it." not like "i`m so pissed. i hate this fcking thing!"

I have very very pale skin, to the point where random strangers have said "you're very pale aren`t you?" and i am never picked up on facial recognition on mine, or anyone i knows, digital camera. All of my friends who are not as pale and friends who have olive and black skin are always fine!

I call racist against whiteys! lol

But seriously this seems like a big eff up!
