In Dubai, the airport has created a digital tunnel that scans every faces so travelers no longer need to pass through any sort of security clearance counter.
The tunnel will display natural settings such as aquarium or desert and will be equipped with 80 cameras. The animation attracts the vision of the traveler while the camera scan his face. Travelers have to pre-register at one of the airport’s 3D face scanning kiosks so the virtual wall can compare their bio-metrics with their digital profile.
The tunnel will open in the terminal 3 of the Dubai airport in 2018.
Beyond transportation, many companies are interested in Biometric scanning to revolutionize the customer experience.

Customers of Lloyds Banking Group will soon be able to use fingerprint and facial recognition to log into their bank account.
