Biometric humiliation

found on Imgur

It's not unbelievable that they would want to scan your face, in fact it's probably common knowledge by now that they do perform facial recognition at some airports. What may not be common knowledge is what the user experience for that sort of technology is like. This person's embarrassment was due merely to lack of familiarity with that sort of technology. I don't know how we avoided the design of using flatbed scanners for face scanning, but thankfully we did.
