Every movie genre has its own trope. Action movies feature heroes who never miss a shot or have to reload their weapon, while science fiction films frequently include voice identification. And facial recognition. As well as retina scanning, among a host of others.
But have you ever stopped to realize that despite being in a fictional film, many of these biometric technologies now exist?
Who would have ever thought that you would be able to essentially turn your home into your own Starfleet vessel, issuing commands as if you were Captain Kirk.
Everyone now has the ability to have access to their own personal Spock, albeit named Alexa, Siri or Google.
Even something as common as a smartphone now includes a fingerprint scanner that can be used to unlock the device or sign into apps.
It’s easy to not realize how frequently we use biometrics in everyday life when enjoying the escapism of science fiction films.
Technology that we used to dream of existing is now used to access buildings and adjust room temperature.
