High Tech Car Seat Includes Butt Recognition System

Science fiction movies such as Demolition Man inform us that the future of locksmithing lies in biometric recognition technology, like retinal scans. They were partially right. Locks will scan users' body parts, but not always the eyes. Researchers at the Advanced Institute of Industrial Technology have developed a car seat that measures and evaluates the body shape of the person sitting in it:

The trick is that the system measures the pressure people apply on the seat through a set of 360 sensors.

Each sensor is measuring pressure by its own and sends the information to a laptop, which aggregates the information to show key data like the highest value of pressure, area of contact on the seat (see below), and other factors. According to its makers, the system was able to identify drivers with 98% accuracy during experiments.


For every lock, there's a lockpick. How do you think thieves will crack this system?

Wouldn't you defeat this the same as usual, bypass the Anti-theft system completely?

Does it keep track of the driver's flux on the BMI?
