myris was one of 16 products among the thousands being unveiled and displayed at this year's CES show to be awarded an "Editor's Choice Award" by Popular Mechanics. myris was recognized for its innovative product design. Popular Mechanics editor James Meigs said, "Our editors have searched the floor to find the 16 products they feel are ‘Best in Show’ in terms of consumer appeal, excellence, and innovation."

Aside from DNA verification, there's no better security than iris recognition. The new EyeLock Myris opens that technology up for consumer use, letting businesses and privacy-conscious individuals bypass password entry entirely.

Using the same biometric protocols you'd find in high-sensitivity security checkpoints, the Myris can reduce the chance of a false positive to 1 in 2.25 trillion, if the user scans both eyes.

Last year when we looked at these guys, they knocked our socks off. The scenario was the security entrance to the gates at a busy international airport and their product could pick out and verify identities at a distance and in motion. We could only imagine the positive impact on both security and efficiency in this use case.

EyeLock is a miniaturized iris-based scanner that sports remarkable speed and accuracy. Now, with the EyeSwipe Nano, such commercial applications as banks, pharmacies, office buildings, etc., can take advantage of biometric-grade access control at a reasonable price. The Nano can replace traditional card swipe access management, maintain better security and speed up the access process.

When we talk about access control, we usually assume that we are discussing all of its aspects, including identification, authentication and authorization. This month, we are hitting some important high points that touch each of those. First, we look at biometrics, which has long been thought of as expensive and, perhaps, a bit too flaky for mass use. Oh, there was never any doubt that if you could have a low cost, accurate, easy-to-use biometric tool you could have solid authentication. But cost and other factors limited their use to very high-security applications.
