Crean un ordenador robótico que se manipula a distancia, con los gestos de las manos

En la LIFT Conference 2009, celebrada en Ginebra, dos inventores han presentado un curioso ordenador, el QB1. Con un diseño sobrio y articulado, esta máquina está revestida de un material negro y, cuando reconoce a alguien, su pantalla se gira por sí sola hacia el usuario. Para darle órdenes no se necesita ni un teclado ni un ratón: QB1 es dirigido tan sólo con gestos de las manos. En los últimos años ha cambiado mucho nuestra forma de usar los ordenadores y, por tanto, tal vez sea hora de transformar el formato de éstos. Los ...

The Myth of Biometrics Enhanced Security - part 2

Biometric standards can be obtained only if the common information is unconcealed. That, in and of itself, creates system wide vulnerability, and thereby renders the system unsecure. At present, each biometric scanner's vendor generates their own encryption method. Raw biometric data is critical data. It should not be exposed or stored in public space. As difficult as it might be to create a secure standard for identical encryption paths, it is seemingly not possible to create standards for non-identical encryption paths. Overcoming the encryption matching hurdle is the see-saw that creates the security blind spots because the template can ...

The Myth of Biometrics Enhanced Security - part 1

Current Biometric documents are useless. ePassports don't make much sense without one-only or unequalled biometric passport reader. Let’s face it once and for all, any electronic data storage method by which content can be read (e.g. RFID, smart/storage cards, etc.), gives it the obvious potential to be hacked, copied and cloned. There's a reason why “Random Access”, “Write Only Memory” (“WOM”) devices have never sound logical. What purpose would there be to store data that cannot be read? Let’s take this one step further. If stored information is designed to be read, then a ...
