02/07/2007 Archived Entry: "Secret iris scanning on the horizon"

MINORITY REPORT is coming true. An outfit in New Jersey has developed a covert iris-scanner. It can allegedly "read" your identity on the fly, without your knowledge or consent.

According to the article, the system has already been used in that great bastion of freedom, the United Arab Emirates. Can Boston, New York, or Mordor-on-the-Potomac be far behind?

Actually, I'll believe it when I don't see it. The article carries more than a faint tang of marketing hype. Could be another case of a company angling for big gummint bux when its product will never deliver on promises.
