Panasonic develops walkthrough iris scanner to hasten ID checks

Filed under:

Snappy retinal scanners have been in the works for some time, and now Panasonic is apparently hoping to hasten those annoying ID checks by enabling security personnel to confirm the true identity of a person walking through in just “two seconds.” Additionally, this scanner does not require subjects to “focus on the equipment,” packs “multiple two-megapixel cameras,” and in case you couldn’t guess, is being marketed towards airports and high-security office buildings. No word just yet on when these may be rolled out for public use, but anything (well, almost) that speeds up our traveling is smiled upon by us.
