Eyelock Myris

Hands on with EyeLock myris, log in with your eyes

Tonight, we got a chance to see a demo of EyeLock myris, a USB-enabled iris identity authenticator. Iris authentication has been available to corporations and enterprises for years, but this product promises to be user-friendly or cost-effective enough for individuals to use in everyday situations. Instead of typing in usernames and passwords, place the EyeLock myris in front of your face to log in.

Head past the break to watch the demo.

The EyeLock myris is compatible with Windows 7 and 8, Mac OS and Chrome OS and can be used to grant access to digital networks such as online bank accounts, social media, Internet VPNs, email and more. It supports up to five different users.

Key features:

  • Simple set-up and user-friendly application software allow users to securely and easily manage all passwords and accounts
  • Authentication happens on the device - no personal information is transmitted
  • 1 in 2.25 trillion False Accept Rate ensures only the authorized user can access accounts
  • Video-based system for advanced identification
  • No batteries needed - fully powered through the USB connection
  • myris offers consumers multiple user capacity for individually protected accounts – up to five per device
  • Secure communication and military grade encryption with AES 256
  • Compatible with Windows 7 & 8, Mac OS and Chrome OS

EyeLock Myris

The myris is about the size of a computer mouse. You’ll need to plug it into one of your USB ports. When you need to authenticate, pick up the myris, and then look into its mirror. There’s a light ring around the camera. It lights blue at the start and then green when it's finished.

The Eyelock myris will be available in the next two months and it will be priced under $300. More details to come very soon. Are you interested in logging in with the myris? Let us know in the comments!

If I get kidnapped I would end up fearing that my eyes would be forcefully removed from me. I prefer being asked for a password.

Sounds like you want a mini Kinect. I wonder when that will happen.

I'm all for a 2x41 megapixel cameras from microsoft to put into the next Kinect so it can varify using eyes. HECK, Nokia, put main sensor of 920 in the Goldfinger's FFC xD

Aman2901 says:

It can also be placed besides our phone's front camera..Just an idea..

I rather have a authenticator that I put my junk in for authentication. Or a but scanner. Just things no one will think of.

jsnod25 says:

Nik Rolls says:

Let me know when you launch this Kickstarter project, I'm in.

mahesh nakka says:

reda igbaria says:

It's nice, but can I use it as a webcam also?

Nakazul says:

Demonstrated on W7? I don't understand tech companies, should they be on the latest and the greatest?

SwimSwim says:

In the eyes of many, Windows 7 is the latest a greatest, whereas Windows 8 is another Vista.

Fritzly says:

Companies usually go to the one with the largest market share... Therefore W7.

wpguy says:
