By their cheeks you will know them

“Facial recognition technology is growing rapidly, both in the consumer world and among police, but privacy advocates are troubled by the potential for intrusion and misuse,” California Watch reports.

“… India’s government is working on an ambitious plan to biometrically identify each of its more than one billion people, and Mexico in 2010 signed a contract with Pennsylvania-based Unisys Corp. to build a large database of fingerprint, eye and faceprint information belonging to millions of people there. Officials in the United States already collect biometric data on international travellers wishing to enter the country. …

Researchers are also looking at the way we walk and even at human buttocks as possible unique identifiers for the future.”

This gives new meaning to having a head up your ass.

The idea of using buttocks for identification sounds indeed funny.

It's just a pity that the whole "big brother is watching you" thing sadly isn't just a joke. And it definitely is a threat for people belonging to the kinky community, at least for those who are open enough to join public events or share pictures online. :-(

I wonder if the Bare Bottom Game series at the American Spanking Society blog is undercover research for this project ;)

Hermione, would you call all these 'data base' collections 'ASS'-A-NINE'.

Lea said...

I've wondered with those super scanners at airports if they can see through my clothes right down to my bruised bottom when I'm coming home from a party. Lol.

Hermione said...

Dee - They would spot us a mile away:)

Prefectdt - Could be:)

Six - Yes, pretty much.

Lee - You've been exposed!
