Holographic ID

3D ID.

According to this story on WiredNews, holographic “mug shots” are the identification of the future. And, DuPont Authentication Systems and A4Vision, who developed the newest, easiest 3D ID system, think so, too.
Actually, the idea is pretty cool. Basically, the idea is to make it harder to counterfeit ID’s by incorporating a holographic picture of the correct, legal carrier of the ID. I think it’s a good idea. I know that the holograms on credit cards really made them harder to rip off, so the same should be true of other ID. Also, it would help keep passports secure, too. Considering the weight that the Department of Homeland Defense throws around these days, that could be a big deal.
In any case, go to the article and look at the pictures. They’re cool.
