Eye movements could be your next password

Biometrics is being marketed to the public as something so useful, that it might in fact some day become neccesary(for your “security” of course,as this story leads you to beleive). I think this type of technology could be incredibly useful, if wasn’t being hijacked by the corporate Military/Security/Surveillance Industry complex to spy on and track millions of people across the globe. These advances in Technology are quickly becoming a part of the New Totalitarianism .

No two people look at the world in the same way — literally. When looking at a picture, different people will move their eyes among points of interest in different sequences, researchers have found. Even if two people trace the same paths, the exact way they move their eyes differs. That’s why Oleg Komogortsev, a computer scientist at Texas State University-San Marcos, is looking to create a system that can identify people by the way they flicker their eyes while looking at a computer screen.

“We are seeing there are enough differences so we can talk about this as a biometric,” Komogortsev told TechNewsDaily. A biometric is a measurement of something on the body — fingerprints, for instance — used to identify people. Computer scientists all over the world are studying biometrics for crime solving, for border security, and just as a high-tech way to sign into smartphones, tablets and other devices.

Komogortsev’s research is in its earliest stages and needs years of work before it might show up at airports, high-security workplaces or even home computers. However, he thinks eye movements could be part of the next generation of a more established biometric, iris scans, which are already used in some airports and private companies.
