It is a buzzword at the moment: biometrics. Everyone is talking about it and consumers are buying laptops with shiny finger print scanners. This talk will take a look at biometrics in science fiction films. In reality, biometric systems often don't work. In the movies, we can see what those recognition systems will look like and how they will work in the future. You can have your eyeball or face scanned and then you can easily walk through high security gates. The biometric system works flawlessly - until your eyeball gets stolen. Thanks to the movies, we also know biometric scanners are easy to defeat. We will witness movies where the nifty biometric security software is tricked. We will show short film scenes of appr. fifty movies and comment them.
