New Tech Scans Irises to ID Students
Students can’t lose their IDs when more schools
implement new biotechnology like iris scanning.
Companies like BlinkSpot offer technology that
scans student irises as children board or exit the bus,
for example, and this data is sent in real time to the
school, along with an individual email to each parent
verifying the time and location of their child. Other
companies looking into the school market include
EyeLock, which is piloting their iris scanning devices in elementary school districts
around the country. For details, visit www.eyelock.com or www.blinkspot.com.
