Apple’s New iDevice Unlocking Patent? Image Recognition

Apple’s new patent for unlocking its iDevices filed two years ago recently became public and aims to use images instead of numbers to unlock a user’s phone, tablet or Mac computer. The image recognition tool would require users to identify the correct image set by the user either by typing the “correct answer” or saying it to the device’s microphone. I tend to love the idea behind this cool patent, and would love to see an Android tweak type/app.
