Google knows the walk you walk

Published February 2, 2016

Rather than have my phone lock itself every few minutes, I see there are a bunch of options I can use to keep it unlocked — face recognition, Wi-fi network, location, etc.

This one struck me as particularly cool: It can tell the phone is in my pocket by analyzing my walk.

Reminds me of a scene in Little Brother. But still, cool in a tech-appreciation sort of way.
