"In the future, whether it's entering your home, opening your car, entering your workspace, getting a pharmacy prescription refilled, or having your medical records pulled up, everything will come off that unique key that is your iris," says Jeff Carter, CDO of Global Rainmakers. Before coming to GRI, Carter headed a think tank partnership between Bank of America, Harvard, and MIT. "Every person, place, and thing on this planet will be connected [to the iris system] within the next 10 years," he says.


How do you think this will transform life as we know it?

Did you read the article? His company is completely fitting biometric sensors in a city now. Furthermore, they are able to make cost effective sensors now- $50-100 a pop. You're going to tell me that banks, merchants, and governments aren't going to jump at the tech if for no other reason than the cost savings of using biometrics?

That won't work with this tech, apparently.

Tom Cruise called and said you can have your eyeballs removed to keep them from tracking you down.

Even if it doesn't happen in the next ten years, I don't think it is unreasonable to think it could happen in our children's lifetimes.

I can agree with that statement.There's no telling how much stuff will change for my kids,I sometimes cringe at the thought of how things may be.I just think 10 years is a lil premature,but we'll see I guess.

Well, for one thing, the names of felons on the run will fill up the waiting lists for eyeball transplants which will be performed by docs who can't afford malpractice insurance.

The bank I used to run security for used iris scanners in their most sensitive areas. The technology worked rather well. It was a little slow but that's to be expected with 1st generation equipment.
