Now, your body odour to be your ID!
THE LATEST BIOMETRIC TOOL: BODY ODOUR!
Facial recognition, fingerprints and iris scans are passe — the latest biometric identification method on the block is, hold your breath, body odour!
Researchers at Spain’s Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, in collaboration with tech firm IIia Sistemas SL, are developing a system that can verify people by their scent signatures.
Recognisable body odour patterns remain constant enough over time to allow people to be identified with an accuracy rate of 85 percent.
