The government could soon be using an iPhone to check your identity

Identity verification specialist AOptix is offering an iPhone-based biometric identification system aimed at government customers.

While there are existing solutions out there, the AOptix one is unusually comprehensive: it can recognise your face, iris, voice and fingerprints. The system – intended for border checks, defense and healthcare applications – comprises a special case for the iPhone 4/4S with a $199 app.
