This iPhone Case Can Scan Your Irises

This iPhone Case Can Scan Your Irises

Fingerprints could be going the way of the dinosaur thanks to this iris scanning device from AOptix that fits on an iPhone; and they're pitching it now to police and security firms.  

The iris scanner works by shining a bright infrared light into the eye and taking a picture of the iris from about 10 inches away, then matching the patterns of the colored part of the eye with what is stored on a database. The company actually claims that the scanner can work from 60 feet away (yeah, that's not INSANE.) 

Word to the wise: don't do the crime if you can't do the time—because technology is getting better at making sure you get caught.
