    Biometric devices measure parts of the body including hand, retina, voice, etc, for identification. A grocery store here uses a hand scanner for employee timestamping, and Disney uses them for their guests. Some laptop computers are even adding thumbprint scanning to their security measures.

    Personally, I don't want to lose a body part if someone absolutely insists on passing as me to the scanner. The same would be true of RFID implants for identification.

    I have a biometrics directory at my CIA Tradecraft yahoo group:

    There is also remote brain scanning, a technology being used in airports to help identify criminals. I have some information on this in my Mind Control Resources directory:

    What Are Biometric Devices

  • 5 years ago

    Biometric Devices' is a broad term, encompassing biometric attendance system, access control systems, iris scanners, face cameras and so on. Broadly speaking, a device that uses biometrics of any kind (like fingerprints, facial recognition and so on), to authenticate the identity of an individual, is a biometric device.

    Biometric devices are any control in place that uses a persons unique physiology to determine identity.

    Such as, fingerprint, retinal scan, bone density, facial recognition, DNA, etc.

    It helps eliminate counterfeit or stolen access cards, ID's, and passwords.

    It's very possible to learn to sing well. You just need to know the right methods. Learn here

    Singing teachers will cost money and can be expensive so they're not for everyone. Singing can be learned so it's not an "either you have it or you don't" kind of thing.

    Whether you sound like crap or you're decent, I recommend this singing course. It's one of the best methods to learn to sing well in a short amount of time. It's all about using efficient techniques that work.
