Sony taps veins for better biometrics

Sony has unveiled the next step in biometric security: a camera-based system that analyses veins in your fingers. The user first lays one side of their index finger down on a small pad, after which a series of LEDs shine infrared light onto it. A CMOS sensor sat on the other side of the finger then picks up light scattered off of the veins inside the user's finger.

im guessing these veins are all unique to 1 person just like the finger print and ear shape...hmm i guess u can copy a finger print or a eye scan, maybe even hand size and shape, but dam it, no way in hell to copy a finger full of blood
