Developed at the University of Buffalo, this biometric tool is a major step for computer security. Researchers discovered heart dimensions could be used for biometric identification purposes and claim it's more effective than passwords or thumbprints.
This system measures the heart using low-level Doppler radar. It is also capable of continuous monitoring, so it can detect if someone else tries to start running your computer. The biometric tool only takes 8 seconds to scan a heart and would be able to recognize it thereafter. The system makes identifications based on the size, shape and geometry of the heart. Its developers believe the technology is an improvement over existing biometric solutions because it is "a passive, non-contact device."
