  • CEATEC is a new tech show going on these days in Japan and it included a showcasing of KDDI’s smartphone authentication app, available on Android. It was tested on the HTC J, as shown in the video below and it worked just great. You can forget about face unlock, lockscreen codes and fingerprint scanners, since this is the latest authentication trend.

    It takes advantage of the high resolution cameras on Android phones and scans in tandem with the flash, so it can get a better view of your palm. After a brief setup is performed, one that involves placing the hand between red markers, the phone is calibrated to the hand. After that, when you lock the device and try to unlock it you’re sent to the palm authentication screen, where your palms grant you access to your phone. Of course, it all works slower than typing in a password, but the technology is just getting started.

    At least the technology is able to tell between different palms, so that’s a good thing. The application should be available today on Google Play Store in free trial mode, so check the store out and see if you find it later in the day.
