You may have noticed that our blog got a little face lift. We recently upgraded our design and format to help highlight our educational videos and social media platforms so you can continue to receive the latest and greatest news on biometric identification technology and stay engaged with us. We like staying engaged with you too!
The world of biometric identification technology is changing fast. Just today, it was announced that AOptix has released an iPhone with the capability to scan an iris, face, fingerprint, or voice. We could certainly feel something was about to happen in the mobile world with biometric identification when Apple recently purchased Authentec, purportedly to gain access to their tools for fingerprint sensors and identity management that work with NFC, and use of its patent portfolio. The news of the new iPhone has been buzzing around the Twittersphere and other social media platforms, many who are curious about how the technology works, others who seem vehemently opposed to it, and yet more who are excited to try it out for themselves.
Biometric identification is changing the world we live in. As we have discussed on this blog before, once relegated top secret government deployments and Hollywood movie screens, biometrics has made the leap to commercial applications increasing security and convenience and demonstrating strong return on investment. Hold on to your hats and brace yourself for the next 5 – 10 years when the biometric identification industry is expected to blossom and see its full potential. You can’t deny that the technology is here to stay and constantly evolving but not without its kinks and areas for improvement.
It’s an exciting time to be in the biometric identification industry, and we are happy you are here to join us on the journey.
