Amazon wants to make answering your phone easier

Forget about fingerprints and number codes.  Amazon is working on a way to unlock a phone with the touch of an ear.  According to, the patented system would recognize the shape of your ear when you raise a device near your face to answer.

Just like matching up fingerprints with those from a database, this technology could help you log in to your phone without having to enter a passcode or pattern.

The human ear is said to be as unique an identifier as a fingerprint, so you can rest assured that your phone will work with your ears only.

In addition to authentication, the method could also be used to dynamically adjust speaker volume by determining the distance between the phone and the user’s ear.
