EyeVerify lets you secure your smartphone with your eyes
Android might have face unlock, which has been defeated previously with photos, but EyeVerify is aiming to take things a step further. At Mobile World Congress this week, the company is demonstrating its Eyeprint technology that's designed to scan a users eye veins and grant them access to a phone or application.
We got to try the software today, and it's clear it's in the very early stages of being ready for your average smartphone. A prototype app running on an iPod showed how Eyeprint works by using the front or rear facing cameras of a device. On the rear camera the technology takes advantage of the LED flash to secure a solid image of the eye, before assessing the quality of the image and then segmenting it into sections for a verification process.
