What is the principle of the new device?

The device is placed on the roof of the mouth and works similarly to a fingerprint recognition system, as it can identify an individual through the unique patterns of skin protrusions or folds on the roof of the mouth.

What are the risks of fingerprint fraud or hacking?

When a regular password is hacked and stolen, it can be changed easily, but if the fingerprint is stolen or imitated, it cannot be changed at all.

The methods of protecting smart devices and systems have evolved dramatically over the past few years, and the more complex the security methods, the hackers have developed the means of hacking.

So a team of design graduates from the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London developed a wearable device hidden in the mouth as a new method for biometric authentication.

The developers describe their device, called "Stealth", that it will keep sensitive and digital user information safe, it is impenetrable, and can replace fingerprints and facial recognition system.

The device is placed on the roof of the mouth and works similarly to a fingerprint recognition system, as it can identify an individual through the unique patterns of skin protrusions or folds on the roof of the mouth.

"Passwords are vulnerable to hacking," the designers said. "People leave traces of biometrics - like a fingerprint - unconsciously everywhere, which makes them less reliable if they are targeted and fraudulent."

According to the designers, a fingerprint can be imitated with simple materials that only cost a few dollars.

They added, "Once biometrics are forged or compromised, nothing can be done to change them. If a fingerprint is compromised, it cannot be changed at all."

The mouth contains many biometrics that are naturally hidden that other people cannot easily collect, including fingerprints of the tongue, teeth, palate and saliva.

According to what was published by "Design", today, Wednesday, the team registered a patent for the design of the device, and the team hopes that their innovation will open new possibilities for human-computer interaction, and it could provide a completely new way for multimedia experiences.
