Irisys releases portable USB iris recognition device
The device marks the company’s first commercialized product, which it will showcase at exhibitions and conferences around the world.
Lockit, which can connect to a smartphone or PC via a micro USB port, features a micro camera module and infrared LED with auto focus.
After the user initially registers their iris biometric image, he or she can connect the device to a smartphone or PC via a micro USB port.
The iris recognition authentication process takes about 0.2 to 0.8 seconds to complete, depending on the surrounding environment. The individual’s eye should be 5 to 25cm away from the camera/webcam in order for the device to recognize the iris.
Once the iris is recognized, the one-time use password is displayed in form of time sync on the LCD display, which is located on the back of the device.
Irisys has posted a video demonstrating the new iris recognition USB device.
