Iris Scanning

"When a parent arrives to pick up her child at one of three grade schools in the Freehold Borough School District, she'll need to look into a camera that will take a digital image of her iris. That photo will establish positive identification to gain entrance into the school."

With terrorism, missing children, and just plain craziness in the world, security is getting tighter and tighter. Again as I stated in this post, I do not think this is the mark of the beast but it sure seems we are steadily marching towards it.

And as the end of this article reports the world is banking on the march continuing.

"Global biometric revenues are projected to grow from $2.1 billion in 2006 to $5.7 billion in 2010, according International Biometric Group. Iris scanning is emerging, albeit slowly. The research firm said iris recognition revenues are expected to exceed $250 million by 2008."
