MouseComputers releases Windows Hello facial recognition camera for Windows 10

March 24, 2017 - 

MouseComputers recently made available its Mouse Facial Recognition Camera For Windows Hello (CM01-A), which allows Windows 10 users to add facial recognition capabilities to their existing device, according to a report by Supersite Windows.

The company first showcased the camera last year at the COMPUTEX Taipei 2016 conference. The product was previously available only in the Asia Pacific market, but can now be purchased in the US through Amazon.

Priced at $69.99, the MouseComputers peripheral camera features an infrared camera that can be plugged directly into the USB port and enables Windows Hello for Windows 10 devices.

The new peripheral camera is only the third camera on the market that can add Windows Hello facial recognition capabilities to an existing device running Windows 10.

Other facial recognition cameras compatible with Windows 10 include Logitech Brio ($199) and Razer Stargazer ($149), both of which are considerably more expensive than MouseComputers’ new camera.

Earlier this year Microsoft reported that there are as many as 100 Windows devices and accessories across all platforms starting from laptops, all-in-ones, 2-in-1s, tablets, phones to peripheral devices to use with Windows Hello.
