SCE Patent Plans to Track Your DNA, Fingerprints, Voice Pattern, Iris, Face

Sony Computer Entertainment has published a patent to track you with biometric sensors that even include DNA analyzers, so that they know what you are doing at any given time.

Really. What will they track us with next?

The above. On our discs. Without label or warning.

The funny thing is, they already track us. I read the following in the patent application:
"In the prior art security systems for device such as personal computers have used biometric sensors such as fingerprint sensors as alternatives to entering a password. However, such security systems are not contingent on the identity of the user while the user is using the device. Instead, the user is only identified at when the user starts up the device. Once the device starts up, anyone can use the device. Such prior art security systems are, therefore, easily circumvented."

And it seems that the Sony guys patent attorneys never played Kinect, which does exactly that: if you are already logged in and someone else tries to play a game, Kinect will automatically identify them and log them in based on facial recognition.

You think that's bad, you should see what Facebook and Google do. All sorts of worrying things like this going on.

tachy0n1406d ago (Edited 1406d ago )

but not everything you post in facebook about you has to be real. i got a facebook account and i never put true information on it.

with patents like this, just proves the existence of the new world order, why is it important for governments and corporations to track you all the time and know everything that you are doing at all times?

where is privacy in this?

@tachy0n

Google nor FB really need you to post true information. By keeping record of your behavior they can find ways of extrapolating information.
Heck, Google can predict very accurately (accurately enough for their purposes anyway) how far you sit from the screen and your gender just by your search history and way of doing it.

5 years from now governments will be trying to push the R.F.I.D. chip on the worlds population. Every American passport apparently has one of these chips, and here in British Columbia we have these so called "enhanced driver's licenses", which contain the chip, but you have to pay extra if you want one of these things.

R.F.I.D. chips constantly emit a signal, so if the Police or an Intelligence Agency, or even an organized criminal network get a hold of electronic units that can decipher these signals, then they would be able to drive through a neighbourhood, and know who exactly is inside a home at any time. They would also potentially have access to all of your personal information.

I think we're heading towards a highly controlled future. People will not be able to move around freely, or have any privacy whatsoever. Its just too bad that there are so many morons that buy into these technologies. People need to resist some of these new technologies such as what Sony seems to be preparing for at some point. The day consoles go biometric, is the day that I say goodbye to consoles.

@BattleAxe
I dont think its necessarily people buying into that tech its more so that people tend to give up their freedom for security.

Nothing new
"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
- Benjamin Franklin
Sadly people would and did.9/11 resulted in the patriot act for example and the even sadder part is its false security.
Im not going to bring the conspiracy theory talk to N4G so il just leave it at that lol
But complete freedom would be consider anarchy so security is essential but to an extent.

I'm never logged in on gmail while doing google search or looking at google maps

DeadlyFire1406d ago

@Battleaxe um..I see piracy as their main concern. Advertising specific to which individual that logs in is also a key factor. I don't think we have to worry about the other stuff just yet.

this might give a new name to identity theft...
