Eye Scanner Security- A little creepy


According to many security experts, iris recognition is likely the most fail-proof and high-tech security tool out there, which is why companies like Panasonic are jumping into the cargo of this possibly profitable ride. Panasonic’s upcoming scanner, the BM-ET200, is voice activated (with intimidating prompts like “stand up straight”) and identifies a user within 0.3 seconds. It can be modded to hold over 10,000 user records and is expected to start selling near a $2,500 tag when it becomes available in the US next year.
