Anti-Theft Car Seat uses your backside for ID
by Mark R
I have to admit that it was difficult to come up with a headline for this posting. How else can you describe that your butt (or some even more vulgar word) can be used as an identifier.
After all, every car thief has to sit in the driver’s seat and drive away. However, what if there was some theft-deterrent in place so the car will only drive when only certain butts are programmed in.
Yeah, this is one of those things that is really fun to write about because it’s really easy to make a joke about. However, this is a device under development. In fact, the lower section is lined with 360 pressure sensors that measures the force of the backside across the seat. Then, after all that pressure is analyzed in central laptop, the system will determine whether this butt belongs to you.
Believe it or not, the Advanced Institute of Industrial Technology in Tokyo says that this butt-scan is 98 percent accurate. I’m not certain how it measures against a fingerprint or eye-dentifier scan, but the tech certainly looks promising.
Who knows? In a few years, all of our cars will have our…yeah, I guess you can see where this is going. But forget it, it is too easy of a joke to make.
