    Better Off Ted aired an episode last season with the following plot...
    A new motion-sensor system creates racial problems after employees discover it cannot sense dark skin

    So, I couldn't believe it when I read the following article...

    HP Investigates Claims of ‘Racist’ Computers

    ...of all the ridiculous plot lines to show up in real life :).

    I had a client that made automatic doors for supermarkets, hotels, etc. Its automatic door sensors had trouble with people who wore large afro hairstyles.

    The sliding doors at work don't discriminate. They'll freak out on anyone.
