Innovation Design Engineering



Biometrics refer to the sets of unique characteristics and traits possessed by every human being. These could be utilised to positively identify individuals, and reflect their degrees of wellbeing over time.

This project explores the immense impact of biometrics, as it becomes instilled as capability in consumer electronic products. By creating more intuitive user experiences, powerful profile management networks and next-generation content-sharing possibilities, biometric technologies create significant advantages for their enabled products. Together they create a future where everything except identity can be shared.
