June 30th, 2008 Posted in Science & Technology, Security

I worked on a project fingerprint project like this in school lots a years ago, it was fun stuff

Lockheed Martin has been tapped by the FBI to develop a system for storing and analyzing more biometric markers to augment the fingerprint collection system the agency already maintains. The Next Generation Identification (NGI) system will store photographs and palm prints, according to a story in Popular Mechanics, and may even include iris scans.
