Eyelock — myris
EyeLock asked frog to design and develop the hardware and consumer facing application software for a user-friendly, biometric authentication system based on their advanced iris authentication technology.
Increasingly, biometric authentication systems using palm vein, fingerprints, and facial recognition are being integrated into our daily lives. To gain wider acceptance of Eyelock’s advanced iris authentication technology, a higher level of comfort and trust had to be established to encourage users to provide personalized information—specifically, the 240 unique characteristics of their own irises—to a digital identity system.
Design research revealed that a biometric experience must be flexible, approachable, and simple to use and manage. The enrollment and identification processes needed to be safe, secure, and frictionless.
The design of myris, with its compact size and triangle form mapped on a circle, delivers EyeLock’s proprietary video-based technology right in the palm of your hand.
A combination of materials including Gorilla Glass, aluminum, and Soft Touch coating convey a premium product feel while identifying the device as an iconic form particular to iris identification. The device rests on its face with an inviting presence.
The Spectrum design language references the light is being harnessed to bring the technology to life, while the iconography of simply constructed forms creates the illusion of glass objects that bend and filter the light around them.
myris has attracted considerable attention since its debut in January 2014, including Best Tech acknowledgement from Walt Mossberg and numerous top CES awards from various media outlets. The product marks EyeLock’s foray into identity authentication for enterprise and mass market use across the digital spectrum. With myris, EyeLock has distilled its proven technology platform into a palm-sized form factor to provide secure access to any digital account.
