The iris....

Post by VeenaandNivyah » Mon Mar 13, 2006 12:38 pm

Hey All,
We are all aware the iris is located in the eye and also that it is different in each person, which makes it usable for identification. What arises the difference in every iris and why is it that the iris is not different from the eye of one person to another.

Does the iris die if it is dislocated from the eye????
I read in a book, that the eye is taken from a person and used to open a room with the guy's iris identification.
Is this possible?

Yes it is possible. I saw it done on the Discovery channel. Very strange....

Yeah, i read that in THE ANGELS AND DEMONS by Dan Brown. well, considering the strange theme of the story, i don't think the stuff about dislocating the eye is half as strange. :lol:

Lol veenaandnivyah. The pattern of the iris is sort of like a fingerprint, and so as long as the eye itself is intact a scanner should be able to recognize the pattern.

It could be used, since it is unique to every person.. I don't see why not...

As much as I know retina scan is used for identification.
