Nikon Coolpix Camera: No Love You Long Time

Apparently Nikon's Coolpix Camera's facial recognition feature also sends out a warning if someone blinks in the picture, which actually sounds really cool...unless you're Asian....
"When Joz Wang and her brother bought their mom a Nikon Coolpix S630 digital camera for Mother's Day last year, they discovered what seemed to be a malfunction. Every time they took a portrait of each other smiling, a message flashed across the screen asking, "Did someone blink?" No one had. "I thought the camera was broken!" Wang, 33, recalls. But when her brother posed with his eyes open so wide that he looked "bug-eyed," the messages stopped." Say's Yahoo News

When I first read this article I was appalled and disgusted...If anything, this technology should be used in all Asian driven cars so they can see farther, drive faster, and not cut me off...(Ohhhh Asian stereotype burrrnnn!)
