The smartphone you unlock with your EYES: Fujitsu iris scanner uses infrared light to bring handset to life

You may use your fingerprint to unlock your smartphone, but soon you'll simply stare at your handset to access your apps.

Fujitsu has showcased an iris authentication system that unlocks a smartphone screen by scanning your eyes, making it easier and faster to log in.

The Japanese firm’s technology can also be used to log into Facebook, email or other web services.

A demo of the prototype first went on display at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona in March but now Fujitsu has given more demos of its prototype smartphone, which includes the scanner component, in Tokyo.

The company plans on launching the handset add-on later this year.

‘Fujitsu’s new authentication method uses iris recognition, which is hard to forge and convenient to use,’ the firm told MailOnline at MWC.

‘The screen can be unlocked simply by looking at it, which eliminates the trouble of having to use [your] hands when wearing gloves and can’t use a fingerprint.’

Iris authentication is a type of biometric authentication, similar to fingerprint scanners.

It identifies a person by scanning the pattern of their iris, which is the ring around the pupil of the eye. 

The pattern doesn't change significantly after the age of two, it's difficult to injure its surface and tough to forge.

Movements of the smooth muscle of the iris make the eye’s openings larger or smaller, which in turn adjusts the amount of light that enters the retina.

FUJITSU’S IRIS AUTHENTICATION

Fujitsu has developed a ‘custom compact and high-output infrared LED’, and a custom infrared camera.

These were combined with Fujitsu’s camera controller technology and biometric-authentication technology.

For its prototype, Fujitsu has built a miniature scanner so it fits on the front of a smartphone.

It recognises the pattern by shining an infrared LED light on the sensor into the eyes and taking a picture of the pattern with the infrared camera.

This pattern is registered and linked to the user.

Each time they look at their phone, the sensor scans their eyes, matches them with the stored image and unlocks the device.

‘The system can reliably authenticate the detailed patterns of the iris and that can be used in most everyday situations,’ a spokesman for Fujitsu told MaiOnline.

‘This can be used at a normal smartphone viewing distance, rather than within the 10cm range most existing iris recognition systems require.

‘And in safety testing, the infrared LED light was verified to be safe for the eyes.’

Fujitsu told MailOnline that the sensor will work from ‘a standard smartphone viewing distance’, which is said to be up to 9 inches (22cm).

Traditional iris authentication systems work up to three inches (10cm), for example.

THE PROBLEM WITH FINGERPRINT SCANNERS

 

Beyond being a little bit fiddly, it's possible to forge fingerprints, making the method of securing a handset using prints less than perfect.

After Apple launched its iPhone 5S handset featuring the touch ID scanner, it took hackers at the Chaos Computer Club just one day to trick it - although it was a complex process.

They photographed a print left on the glass screen of the phone with a cheap scanner and used the image to unlock the handset by making a physical replica.

They said at the time: 'It's plain stupid to use something that you can't change and that you leave everywhere every day as a security token.'

As we become older, our skin loses elasticity, meaning that elderly people or those with rare conditions that leave their fingers smooth and featureless, can't use the technology easily.

And people have complained that they find the scanner in the Galaxy 4 Note and Galaxy 5S handset hard to use and they have to try multiple times before it works, making unlocking their phone an annoying process.

 

Previous versions of similar technology have been large or powerful enough to be used on phones and tablets.

Last year, Samsung hinted it too was working on eye-scanning technology.

A cryptic tweet, sent from Samsung’s Exynos processor division in July, revealed an image of a phone with an eye scanner shown on the display.

The image within the tweet contained the title 'Unlock the Future', and suggested the technology would work in a similar way to the current fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S5 and S6 - by unlocking the phone, and making secure payments.

While it's long been rumoured that the technology is coming to smartphones, it was announced in March that the first Samsung product to get iris scanning technology is the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 tablet.

Samsung is licensing Stanford Research Institute's (SRI) Iris on the Move (IOM) technology, which claims to let users 'glance and go' to unlock a device, instead of staring at a certain place on the screen for a few moments, Android Authority reported. 

SRI said: 'Tests have shown this purely iris-based solution to be more than 1,000 times more accurate than published fingerprint data.'
