The Pentagon Has a Device That Can Use a Laser to Identify Someone Based On Their Heartbeat

The Pentagon’s Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office (CTTSO) developed a device that can identify people based on their cardiac signature using an infrared laser, as first reported by MIT Technology Review on Thursday.
