Iris scan technology hits schools

Eye Scan Technology Comes to Schools

"Parents who want to pick up their kids at school in one New Jersey district now can submit to iris scans, as the technology that helps keep our nation's airports and hotels safe begins to make its way further into American lives.

When picking up a child, the adult provides a driver's license and then submits to an eye scan. If the iris image camera recognizes his or her eyes, the door clicks open."

Apparently the super accurate iris scan isn't enough, they still need to see some ID.
