Boffins come up with new biometrics

Follow your nose


Boffins
have come up with a bizarre way of proving your identity.

Eye scans are apparently not enough,when it comes to verifying an individual's identity and the boffins at the University of Bath want to analysis the shape of your nose.

The team have been working on an experimental system that could help people prove they are who they say they are thanks to the distinct make up of their nose. Using a photographic system called PhotoFace, developed by researchers at the University of the West of England Bristol and Imperial College London, the boffins scanned the shape of volunteers' noses, and developed computer software to analyse the results.

The only danger is that if you walk into a wall or have that long needed nose job, or happen to be a boxer, you could find yourself shut out of your computer, car, or denied entry to a third world country controlled by backward, paranoid border guard, such as the one who works at Los Angeles Airport.
