Your cameraphone -- an iris scanner

Omar McFarlane

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. Though, you will have to wait until March of next year to get your James Bond on; and do watch out for Wesley Snipes, we hear dude's got a thing for gouging.
