Christ! Whatever was wrong with conventional methods, next up is a device identifying you by the smell of you genitals and finally they make it all the way to analyzing your DNA in realtime…

I was going to suggest that they I.D. me by the shape of my arse.

Sure you want to have that 1 scanned in public ??:bigsmile:

Too late for patenting,as it already exists for a few 10.0000 years…it’s named ‘a dog’…:bigsmile:

:bigsmile::bigsmile: - I actually never thought about it that way, but yes, dogs ARE used as biological devices to find drugs, money, whatever :bigsmile::bigsmile: :confused: :clap:

So if I had my ears reshaped like Mr Spock, I wouldn’t be identified :wink:

A most ingenious method. But as is the case with many of these ideas, I suspect it might not work so well in the real world.

Will people be queuing up for an aural probing?

And have they considered the acoustic properties of ear wax?

We westerners aren’t as fastidious about such things as the Japanese. :stuck_out_tongue:

This is exactly what we all need: another way for big tech to personally identify us. It’s a good thing they are so interested in figuring out who we are, because they just aren’t cyber-stalking us enough. They need to cyber-stalk us more!!!

Bad sarcasm aside, what’s wrong with an old-fashioned user name & password? How about instead of scanning our dirty, floppy parts, they just let us do what we’ve done successfully for years. Has typing suddenly become that hard for people?
