Facial recognition and tablet computers apparently a part of Microsoft’s Windows 8, say leaked documents.

Leaked documents detailing Microsoft’s initial thoughts on the development of Windows 8 have surfaced on the internet. The PowerPoint presentation, apparently aimed at an HP executive and dated April 2010, suggested that facial recognition for log in and compatibility with a range of new computers and tablets could be a key part of the forthcoming product.

The original leak has since been taken down, but a number of bloggers such as Microsoft Kitchen provide analysis and screenshots.
