Everyone knows you have to be at the airport hours before your flight is scheduled to take off. It's just common knowledge at this point. You have to check in, check your bags and go through security, which we all know, can have insanely long lines.
The TSA is working on making security lines less painful, but it could use some help - who couldn't? Now, new technology implemented at both the San Francisco and San Jose International airports (and 13 others) is aiming to eliminate some of these long lines when it comes time to check in.
The company is called Clear, and it uses biometric scanning technology - aka fingerprint and iris scanners - to verify your identity. The technology means you'll enter the airport, check in by placing your fingerprint on the sensor and have the machine scan your eyes, then head straight to the security lines.
Clear is also experimenting with adding the tech to boarding passes, luggage tags and payment options.
Between this and rideable luggage, long lines at the airport could soon be a thing of the past. What do you think? Let us know your thoughts by posting in the comments below.
