Your cameraphone -- an iris scanner
Japanese company Oki Electric has announced it is working on technology to turn any cameraphone or camera-equipped PDA into an iris scanner. Able to differentiate between photograph and actual eyes, and boasting an accuracy of 1 error in 100,000 scans, Oki hopes this will improve the security of cellphone payment systems.
