Log On With A Chuckle

Apparently in search of an igNobel award, some researchers in Australia have been working on a system that will let you log into the nearest computer… by laughing. It’s designed to recognize an individual’s laugh, and use that as a voiceprint. The technology is also designed to work in a room where there are multiple computers – since all the various computers that hear the laugh then determine which one you’re closest to. Not quite sure why they chose to make it work by laughing. It would appear that the more interesting technology is the part determining which computer you are closest to.
