Finger Print Identification For Passports

Biometrics is not exactly common in our everyday lives, but the technology holds so much potential that it is inevitably going to be introduced. One form is fingerprint identification, a technology which promises so much in terms of individual security and a far safer approach to identification. Up until now, these types of technologies have only been experimented with, but now Government ministers and the Post Office have agreed to implement ID passports with sophisticated fingerprint technology built in.

The current plan is to roll out the fingerprint secured passports in 2012, with some experimental cards being introduced in 2009 to Non-EU nationals and 'workers in sensitive roles or locations'. Youthful volunteers will then participate by 2010 and over the next two years the plan will be broadened across all UK passport applications. The proposed plan indicates that ID applicants will have their fingerprint submitted to the Post Office, and then have their application processed and passport created.

Excellent, bob. Grab a cold one as my way of saying ctorgans . Here's to many more years of b&r, enlightening discussion, boneheads and other things of the day, and a general increase in fan base. What has it felt like to still be creating an amazing legacy?
