Windows Hello/Intel® RealSense™

With the power of Windows Hello and Intel® RealSense™ technology, your face is the only password you need.

Windows Hello is a more personal way to sign in to your Windows 10 devices with just a look or a touch. You'll get enterprise-grade security without having to type in a password.


Windows Hello utilizes some really cool technology, but the concepts behind biometric security can be hard to explain to an audience of consumers. Why would they want to use Windows Hello? Is this technology a selling point for them? Why use biometric security instead of a regular password?

I designed the retail experience for Windows Hello, which was featured in Microsoft Stores nationwide.


I felt the best way to demonstrate the technology would be to integrate the user into something they might already be familiar with: the Windows 10 environment. Using UI elements that resembled Windows 10 desktop services, the user navigated a simple menu that scanned their face and drew a contour map.

The map would snap to the user’s face, which allowed them to play with the technology and have an emotional response. This was key.

On the next screen, users logged in to a Windows 10 instance using only their face, which demonstrated the power of the technology. Following the log-in screen was a page about other applications of the Intel® RealSense™ technology, such as 3D video chat, motion-controlled games, and cool graphic avatars.


Here are some more examples from the project.
