As long as designers try to remove all kinds of ports and buttons on the surface of phones and tablets, one of the recent additions became biometric sensors. They will bring a new level of safety and comfort, but require more space on the small and closed enclosure. Apple, seems to offer the most practical use of integrated technologies in Touch ID, fingerprint recognition system, the sensor is located just above the button Home. However, things could change thanks to the work of a company called Sonavation. Sonavation managed to tie the biometric ultrasonic 3D sensor to the lower side of the leaf Gorilla Glass, a thickness of 400 microns. This means that the smartphone or tablet will be able to recognize the fingerprint when you just put your finger on the screen. There will be no need for a separate sensor somewhere else, since the entire screen will become the sensor.
Due to its strength and durability, Gorilla Glass is a popular solution for the screen, both smartphones and tablets. This popularity will install sensor Sonavation all devices Android, iOS, or Windows Phone.
Details regarding the principle of operation of this wonder is a little bit. However, Reiner Schmitt, CTO says that the sensor is easily defines any terrain finger. 3D scanning allows you to identify even a dirty finger.
Mounted under glass sensor eliminates the possibility of damage, if the glass was not damaged, and for a good scan requires only a clean surface. Such integration potential sensor opens into a wider range of devices. For example, in your next car can be locking, opening a fingerprint pressed against a particular portion of the window. In general, any technology can double windows with biometric protection.
What could limit the invention Sonavation? Patents. Apple filed a patent application for integration into display fingerprint sensor at the beginning of this year, and the money they have more than ideas about their use. Buy Sonavation and limit the scope of such sensors only devices iOS – a very attractive idea.
