BBC News – Nose scanning techniques could sniff out criminals

leave a comment »

I was hoping, when I saw this article: Nose scanning techniques could sniff out criminals, that it was going to be something to do with criminals having a particular smell but sadly, no, it’s just about how all our noses are different shapes and so might make identification of people on CCTV images easier. What a shame, I got all excited about talking about Lombroso, atavism and eugenics and all for nothing!
