    A great idea. Too bad pricing isn't available.

    Under $400 per unit.

    I used to work at a facility that required retinal eye scanning to gain entry. I know retinal and iris scanning are different, but when women got pregnant, they often were denied entry because their retinas had changed.

    Most women's eyes can change whether they're pregnant or not. It's called dagger eyes!

    True... but taking off gloves is worlds of difference from taking out a contact lens.

    only loons at home will go for this, heads in sand and not realizing the health and privacy implications.

    At $400 and something that's the size of a hockey puck, and looks like it was designed in Redmond ten years ago..... Noooooooo!

    Software could do it with existing built in cameras in most Mac laptops, ipads and iPhones.

    Price is way too high. Fingerprint scanner at NewEgg is $80. :grin: Yes, you have to take off your gloves, but you don't have to remove your contact lens.

    I would like 'face recognition' to be used for password protection. Something that would be automatically done by the built-in camera on start up or anytime you need to enter a PW.

    Gloves?

    I would venture that 99.9% of password/PIN # entries occur
    indoors or at moderate temperatures outdoors. Who wears
    gloves under those conditions?
