UPDATE 3: Someone has managed to repeat the same test with similar set up. A Galaxy Nexus was first set up using his face and then repeated with a digital picture of his face on a Galaxy Note. As expected, he was able to unlock with his photo.
UPDATE 2: We're featured on TheNextWeb and Phandroid! Yet the question still arises on whether I had set up the device to recognise my face or a pciture of my face to do this demo.
While some of you think that it is a trick and I had set the Galaxy Nexus up to recognise the picture, I assure you that the device was set up to recognise my face. I have a few people there watching me do the video and if any one of them is watching this video I hope you can confirm that this test is 100% legit.
I would love to do this test again but I don't have a Galaxy Nexus, it is VERY hard to come by as it is not launched yet, but I urge anyone with a Galaxy Nexus to do the same test. Program the device to recognise YOUR FACE and then try to trick the same device with a similar looking picture, it will work. If anyone does do this test, please tell me so I can link it in this video. Once again people, I know it's just my words right now but this claim is LEGIT.
As always, thanks for watching.
UPDATE: Just to clarify, the Galaxy Nexus in the video was setup to recognise my real face and not the picture taken using the Galaxy Note. See video link for more info. Apologies for the confusion.

We received a question via Twitter asking if a printed photo can fool the Face Unlock to falsely recognise it as a real face and unlock the device.
So we tested it out. You'll be surprised as to what happened.
Thanks @yauhui for the question
