The ability to conduct human scanning in an everyday environment has a number of different impacts. Whether it's about creating a more efficient process or about increasing security, the impacts branch far outside commercial use.

The ability to create a more in-depth database of human information benefits marketing and government agencies to an astounding degree. Market research is incredibly important to numerous companies. Now imagine being able to tell what advertisements specifically get a consumers heart racing, or being able to track a consumers retina to see what garners attention first. This type of technology could completely change the business world
