Iris image capturing system is nothing more than a blink

by Gareth Mankoo

Iris is a name apt enough for a camera that uses iris tracking to know where you’re looking and what needs to be snapped. It’s as simple as that. This intriguing technology makes even the finest, most compact DSLRs of today, seem bulky and pointless. The prototype by the Royal College of Art, London, brings the possibility of such a scenario to a welcoming future. There’s a whole familiarity you come face to face with when you think of your eyelids as shutters. Science Fantasy has always endorsed this possibility with fine finesse.
