Smartphone users often like to personalize their device with designer cases, stickers and other accessories.
It would be really cool to flaunt your biometric data on accessories associated with various electronic devices, such as smartphone cases, watch wristbands, and many other electronic accessories.
Google has developed a biometric designer technology that captures and prints biometric data, such as a waveform representation of speech or heart beats of the user.
A biometric designer software module is connected to a printer that directly prints these waveforms on accessories for electronic devices, such as smartphone cases, watch bands, and laptop cases. Further, the biometric designer module sends images of the captured biometric data to be used as wallpapers on the various electronic devices.
With this technology, users can personalize their gadget’s accessories with their unique biometric signatures. For example, a smartphone user may print his/her voice’s waveform image on the smartphone case which makes the gadget more appealing to the user.
