KDDI offers an Android application that allows you to use the palm of your hand as a recognition tool for unlocking the device.
KDDI’s booth was rather uneventful this year and has not much to show, unless maybe this very cool new palm authentication app for Smartphones. Unlike Fujitsu Palm Reader technology, KDDI’s palm authentication app will actually read your “palm” and take a picture of your palm and its lines and memorised it for future use.
Thanks to today’s Hi-resolution sensors, Cameras embedded on smartphones can take pretty accurate details of objects and in our case every details of your palm lines. Once the picture taken of your memorised hand you will be able to unlock your phone by simply scanning once more your hand with your phone camera.
KDDI has unveiled the new palm authentication app that takes advantage of the high-resolution camera on its Android smartphones. Scanning in tandem with the flash, that has being demonstrated on a HTC J, here at CEATEC 2012 in Japan.
Well this system may not be as secure as Fujitsu’s Palm Secure technology you have to admit that this “Cheat” security solution can be a nice addition to all existing way to secure your smartphone! .
