Neither with a finger nor with our face, we will open the phones with our breath

Neither with a finger nor with our face, we will open the phones with our breath

Pick up your cell phone and just breathe. This will be enough for it to turn on, that is, to switch from the locked state to the active one.

Apparently everyone has a unique way of breathing. As unique as fingerprints. A group of Indian scientists from the Madras Institute of Technology in Chennai have discovered this detail and are working to take it further.

Tests were also conducted with 94 volunteers of both sexes, from whom 10 consecutive breaths were recorded using an air velocity sensor.

Thanks to these tests, the researchers confirmed what they expected, about the uniqueness of each person to expel air from the nose and mouth.

What would be a plus of breath unlocking? A phone can be unlocked with the face or finger of someone who is no longer alive, but breathing, no one could open it and everyone's privacy would be taken away.
