Smartphones developed by Fujitsu have now been integrated with a infrared LED and a special camera capable of snapping a picture of the iris of a person’s eye. With this feature the user is capable of unlocking his or her smartphone without any password.

The phone recognises the hidden unique pattern of the iris, which is set after about the age of two and is difficult to forge. Unlike fingerprints, the iris is protected and does not suffer from wear and tear, while its shape is easier to predict and model than that of a face as it is flatter and only changes in an area controlled by the pupil reflex.
