Biometric ID

Where we are

Biometrics promise to replace the finger-wagging security measures that we’re familiar with by using identification systems that rely on unique biological and physiological information like a person’s gait, gesture, or even the shape of their ear canal, as evidenced by a mobile biometric tool developed at SUNY.

Where we’re going

Our unique qualities of shape, smell, expression and location are harder to duplicate as they are so individual, and they will soon become tools to help personalize dynamic experiences.

How to think about it

Consider activity oriented design and the predictions these intelligent systems could make were they to respond to variables like emotion and movement in specific places with specific people at specific times.
