Biometric identification gradually displaces the usual passwords. You will not surprise anyone with a smartphone with a fingerprint scanner, thanks to which you can forget about password entering. But Amazon decided to go even further and is now working on creating a user identification technology for … his ears.
Amazon received a patent for user identification on the ear shells. The shape of the ears of each person, according to physiognomy experts, and Amazon engineers agree with them, unique. It is for this reason that the company offers to use them to authenticate the user and unlock the smartphone.
As planned by Amazon engineers, unlocking the smartphone will occur automatically. To do this, just bring him to his ear, for example, during a phone call. The new technology will use the front camera and accelerometer, which are equipped with all modern smartphones. True, when the new authentication method in the form of the auricle will become available to ordinary users, it is not specified.
