Gesture-based computing will soon rule the world. When that happens, you won't want want to unlock your phone by doing something as old fashioned as a swipe.
Instead, you'll want to wink at it, or lick your lips, or stick your tongue out, or wrinkle your nose. Google has filed for a patent application that will let you do just that, reports Todd Weiss at eWeek.
The patent overs facial recognition tech that would recognize a user's unique facial expressions to authenticate you so no one else could use your phone.
Fun stuff, wink, wink.
