I am black and my webcam doesn't pick up my facial expressions in a dark room THAT'S RACIST
But aren't you camouflaged? Need white people to play the game in the snow to be sure.

"Well, I suppose they're nice enough people, like you and I... but why would they paint themselves black? That is a silly thing."
Reminds me of my childhood, when I used to think that black people were black because of severe sunburn.

...I was young and reckless, dammit.

It was linked to me by a friend and he happened to be a bit of an animufaggot. That's pretty much my only excuse.

I was relieved to see this problem was restricted to facial recognition and not body motion. That means this is a familiar problem. I'd think after the HP webcam debacle that Microsoft would at least test facial recognition on black people under normal conditions. And that if nothing else, they could work to solve this problem so that other companies don't get slapped with similar "X is racist" YouTube videos. It's a technology problem that you'd think would be easy to spot. Maybe they could test the lightness of the main moving object, and then based on that adjust its sensitivity to contrast so it'd have an easier time picking up darker-skinned people.

Oh no, Microsoft really dropped the ball here. Before this revelation, shitloads of black people were going to buy this piece of shit, right?

... No, you were retarded.

so that explains why no one cares about my posts

No one cares about your posts because you never actually say much.

Its Microsoft. That's the problem.

... yeah except that the article also goes on to say that:

sankakucomplex said:
Kinect had no problems identifying a third dark-skinned GameSpot employee, recognizing his face after a single calibration. Lighter-skinned employees were also consistently picked up on the first try.
It’s important to note that the problems were only experienced with the system’s facial recognition feature and don’t prevent users from playing Kinect games. Skeletal tracking, a primary means of controlling games with Kinect, appeared to work the same for all GameSpot employees.

So it still works for black people.
