I don't feel that this technology will the sole criteria for Bio-metric Identification, this might just complement present technologies to ensure
better alround identification.
Yeah, I had the same doubt if the system could identify if the hand was alive or dead, I think that since it uses an infra red camera it should be
able to detect the veins only if the hand has suffecient heat, but then again a freshly severed hand could still have enough heat to pass the system!
If this system is used along with other bio-metric identification systems like finger print identification, facial recognition, retinal mapping, and
palm scans, all together will be quiet a formidable system to crack indeed.
I feel that the ultimate form of scan would surely involve some sort of rapid DNA test using some sort of noninvasive technique.
This article was informative and interesting.
