A new type of identification device has been developed by a team of design graduates from the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London. The product is developed to be specifically worn in someone's mouth and as a result, it is boasted as a "surveillance-proof authentication method that could replace fingerprints and facial recognition." More precisely, the tech piece can be work on the roof of one's mouth. Visually, it resembles the aesthetic of the dental wire retainer which some might be familiar with, but unlike this familiar object, the product scans the user's "pre-stored palate biometrics."
The official name of the identification device is Stealth and the innovative gadget works to verify one's identity through mouth biometrics. The minds behind this new way of storing and accessing sensitive digital information are Beren Kayali, Lu Ye, Paul Mendieta, and Lea Marolt Sonnenschein.
