New possible airport security reads your eyes

Published Aug 13th, 2007 9:47AM EDT

Think airport security sucks? You’re probably in the majority. A new walkthrough iris-recognition gate could be a potential answer, though. It’s a new product from Panasonic that doesn’t even require you to focus on a particular object. You just have to walk through it slowly enough. If you do, it can read your eyes in about 2 seconds. Pretty slick. The best part? It has a really low failure rate (1/1,200,000), and can even detect if eyes belong to a live or dead person. Make the jump for all the fancy details.
