brings you … Iris Scanning! See the difference!​

ViewSonic (yes, the monitor company) is getting set to launch a Smartphone capable of scanning the human iris to authenticate a user. As we all know, removing someone's eyeball is much more difficult (and messier) than removing someone's fingertip, so this phone, known as the V55, could usher in a new and improved era of Smartphone security.

Watch the teaser trailer below to see the phone in action (all text in Chinese; overly dramatic soundtrack) or enjoy the article (English; no sound).

It looks pretty slow. We have eye scanners at my workplace to get into the buildings. We always have a lot of problems because of the sun during certain times of the day. I can't see this being any better than the full size scanners.
