Yesterday, a leak from one of the most reliable Apple rumor sleuths claimed that the iPhone 8 won’t feature a fingerprint scanner integrated into the display. That feature has been expected for some time. But if a new report is correct, it seems that fingerprints are going to be replaced with 3D facial recognition.
Citing people familiar with the product who did not want to be named, Bloomberg reports that Apple is currently testing whole face 3D scanning with the goal of integrating it into the upcoming iPhone 8. A new 3D sensor is said to be the backbone of the technology and iris scanning may also be a feature.
The sources say that designers are focused on increasing the speed of the sensor’s recognition capabilities and that it only takes “a few hundred milliseconds” to unlock the phone. It can reportedly recognize faces even if the phone is laying flat on a table.<!–more–>
Dubai: Months after Dubai unveiled the first flying taxis in the world, Dubai Police on Tuesday unveiled another believed world’s first — autonomous, self-driving miniature police cars that are expected to hit the streets by year-end.

About the size of a child’s electric toy car, the driverless vehicles will patrol different areas of the city to boost security and hunt for unusual activity, all the while scanning crowds for potential persons of interest to police and known criminals…. read more

opinion: They are preparing people to be monitored, watched over, tracked and followed by every moment of their life. Right now people are voluntarily accepting these gadgets on their body and inside their hands but one day the mark of the beast will be mandatory or you will have your head chopped off.
Revelation 13:1 The Beast from the Sea — 1 Then I saw a beast with ten horns and seven heads rising out of the sea.

Revelation 20:4 Beheaded — Then I saw thrones, and sitting on them were those to whom authority to act as judges and to pass sentence was entrusted. Also I saw the souls of those who had been slain with axes [beheaded] for their witnessing to Jesus and [for preaching and testifying] for the Word of God, and who had refused to pay homage to the beast or his statue and had not accepted his mark or permitted it to be stamped on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived again and ruled with Christ (the Messiah) a thousand years.
If they can prepare you now willingly then it will not be hard for you to accept the mark in the future. The mark of the beast will be after the church is gone. We pray you accept Jesus and learn the Truth of what is really happening. There is purpose and meaning to everything occurring right now. Do you know what that purpose is and are you aware of what is happening? To learn more about the beast click here.
