Eye scans will help keep better track of suspects, NYPD says

...
The new measures are part of an effort to improve security and safeguard identities, said Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly.

Well, I know I feel uncomfortable with a possible future that involves eye scanning detectors everywhere, similar to Minority Report. If such a system were to ever be brought into place, I'm thinking this is how they do it.

Start with criminals, test it out, build a data base. Soon they'll start bringing more people in for smaller charges, building a library of eye prints. With a data bank to work with, they could test new security devices. Put them in prisons, airports, etc. Places that people are ok with high security.

Then, with this technology working smoothly, you implore ad agencies and consumer products. Something that personalizes the shopping experience. Something people, in their ignorance, will celebrate. They have eye scans when they sign up for a store membership, or a credit card. When they get their license, go to school, etc. Within a few years, I bet they could get just about everyone.

Sure, not as bad a smart chip, but just a bump below.

I dunno, maybe its just me, but I like to know I can hide if I want to.

Then they will make special eyewear so they can't do that. No more embarassment about having your eyes checked when buying porn eh?

well I don't know why anyone would buy porn nowadays, but I can see glasses being used to guard against them.

... but then you live in a world where people are too scared to view the world with the naked eye.

Just providing an example. It seems to me that with every new technological installment, there are possibilities of it being used to eradicate some freedoms. The computer did that. Paper did that. Though, there are always constantly adapting methods of overcoming these limitations. I reckon just let them pursue this.

I wonder how long it will be until the TSA is using eye scans and creating a huge database.

Insanity rules...
