I think this is a bit odd. I would rather have a recorded face recognition matching while saying a pass phrase. This would work to allow admins direct access to any account depending on which pass phrase they use. All this would require is a simple 20 sec pre recorded clip of you saying the phrase for a match.
Great maybe one of my chickens can be trained to use Win8 lol. Being in the networking and security field this is a huge risk and isn't worth it. Even if it is tablets they still can hold sensitive data that can be stolen and used such as company records or personal info like SSN or credit card #.
I have a great idea. Lets use a device that has a bunch of letters and commands on it and maybe we'll call it a keyboard. Than in the choose password section we can type out the password we want. Perfect solution. I'm a freakin genius!!!!!
You guys sure take changes really, really bad.
This isn't a bad thing, you can always use a password or picture pw. It's better to have the option to choose between 2 things than being forced to use only 1.
The algorithms for unlocking or breaking passwords are to predict passwords and break into machines. Now,Here picture taping sequence and gestures can be predicted with permutation and combinations.But,advantages are no need of cam like face recognition or no need of fingure tips detector on machine.Its good alternative to regular password.
the most secure way to have a password on a touchscreen device is to have a virtual keypad/keyboard where all of the keys are randomly arranged each time you log on, otherwise the areas where the keys used in the password are will stand out due to smudging.

now that sounds pretty good to me
Come on guys, chill out. That's a nice method, and if you took note of the "password", it would be hard to understand by anyone else.
Now, if you're really frustrated, just be creative when applying step 1, "Pick a photo that has at least 10 points of interest":
Get a nice and "complex" picture from your favourite porn star. It's guaranteed to have lots of points of interest, and it'd be fun to apply all those gestures on them... LOL!
Why does this matter? Unless you encrypt the hard drive with a password, USB boot tools exist that will allow someone access to the system anyway. Setting a Windows password only serves to keep honest people honest and the most base level of idiots out.
