You'll just have to look at the machine and it will be able to tell who you are. The eye-recognition system is being tested in shops and banks in the USA. Experts say that by 2020 eye- recognition will have replaced all other ways of telling who people are. Machines will soon be able to recognize you from the shape of your face or hand or even your smell! We already have machines which can identify you from your voice or fingerprints. But eye-recognition is better because your eyes don't change as you get older, or get dirty like
hands or fingers. And even identical twins have different eyes so the system can offer almost 100% accuracy.
