Biometrics is a field of study of the biometric outputs of the body. It is capable both of recognising unique beings by unique biological tracks – such as fingerprints, iris patterns, breathing or brainwave patters – or equally, it is capable of recognising shared biometric data such as the nerve impulses (neural codes) to lift the knee or rotate the foot. Such codes are shared to a great extent across individuals, greatly simplifying a prospective interface.
