Intel Phone Walk

 

Intel is working on a new security option for smartphones. The demo, which was revealed recently, demonstrates how a smartphone can determine who you are by the way you walk. The rhythm in which you walk is determined by the smartphone’s accelerometer and gyroscope. By saving this information, the phone knows who it’s rightful owner is. However, if someone were to steal the phone, it would automatically detect that the person is not the owner due to their walk. When this happens, the phone will lock automatically on it’s own. It’s a new security device intel is still developing. Hopefully, if released, the device can help with the protection of different smartphones on the market.
