This just came out on Planet Biometrics yesterday:
Iris ID Systems is set to introduce the IrisAccess iCAM D1000 during the Biometric Consortium Conference in Tampa, Florida, this week.
Claimed to be the first “Iris at a Distance” camera of its kind, the multi-modal biometric system – designed for use in airports, border control, immigration, law enforcement and various smart biometric ID card applications including drivers licenses and national ID – can capture, verify and enroll iris and face at a distance of approximately 1 metre with its auto-zoom and auto-focus features.
While the trendy new iPhone 5 makes biometrics seem all hip and cool and voluntary — mandatory biometric programs are being rolled out all over the developing world. Pretty soon, these kinds of technologies will be everywhere and anything but voluntary.
