Long-distance imaging has become so sophisticated that a
football hooligan, or a villain with a criminal record, can be
spotted in a crowd by cameras that detect blood vessels in
the head. The same technology - thermal skin imaging, as
it's called - will also help track lost children, allow entry
into secure areas, and even identify people who are
stressed before they know it themselves.

The technique operates on the principle that humans have
so many blood vessels just below the skin that statistically
no two individuals can have identical layouts.

I bet a little old alcohol swab would do wonders for breaking their pattern
recognition....
