    Presumably there will be a process whereby the camera or lens (or phone) will be able to be sold to another person with a different fingerprint?
    Getting a bit 1984-ish isn’t it? Or is it Brave New World-ish?
    All your digital images taken on your smart camera can be linked to you.
    Ditto for your smart phone.
    You can now pay for stuff on your smart phone and on your FitBit smart watch.
