At Dubai airport, virtual "aquarium" smart tunnels will speed up security lines

Dubai International Airport is introducing facial recognition via a virtual aquarium. From next year, travelers through the airport will no longer wait in line for security checks, instead, they will walk through a tunnel-shaped aquarium, which will be stocked with virtual fish used to catch passengers’ attention. Once focused on the fish, 80 built-in cameras will scan for facial recognition. The first biometric tunnel will begin operation in late 2018 at Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 3, and by 2020 the remaining terminals will be fitted with the tunnels.
