A collaboration between the UMKC School of Computing and Engineering and a Kansas City entrepreneur is creating an app for your smartphone that scans your eye for secure verification.
Dr. Reza Derakhshani, associate professor in the UMKC School of Computing & Engineering, came up with the idea of scanning the vessels in an eye in 2004, but technology hadn't caught up yet.
In 2008, he was granted a patent for the technology.
EyeVerify could be on the market and available for download sometime next year.
