    Virginia Commonwealth University’s new alternative to swipes? Iris cameras.

    From the “look at all the benefits, but ignore the long term implications” file…

    The university on Wednesday installed two iris cameras that will allow meal plan holders to use their eyes instead of having to swipe their IDs to access the dining hall.

    “Students won’t need their ID to enter the dining center anymore,” said Stephen Barr, the director of campus services who oversees VCU Dining Services. “With iris identification, it’s as simple as a camera taking a picture of their eyes and two seconds later they walk through.”

    The new system, which is voluntary, is meant to serve as something of an express lane for students.

    “We thought it’d be a nice service for students to help everybody get through at peak times,” Barr said.

    Plus, he added, the iris cameras will give students who lose their IDs over the weekend the ability to still access their meal plans even though the ID card office is closed.

    “There currently isn’t a mechanism for students to get a replacement ID [over the weekend] so they can access Shafer,” Barr said. “So how do they eat over the weekend? In the past, they’ve had to come out of pocket. Now they don’t have to. This backup lets them get into Shafer so they can eat.”

    Cashiers will remain in place for those who choose not to use the iris cameras, as well as for visitors and others entering Shafer Court.
