Footprints ID People Like Fingerprints

How do you get money to research stuff like this? Seriously...I want to know. Imagine trying to analyze "gait patterns" when a barefoot criminal stubs his toe, sprains an ankle or steps on a nail. Yeah, this is going to be just as good as fingerprints. roll eyes (sarcastic)

How a bare foot strikes the ground as one walks reveals your identity almost as well as a fingerprint, according to a study released Wednesday. The discovery means that one day retinal scans, voice recognition and old-fashioned mugshots may be joined by foot-pressure patterns as a means of confirming ID, it suggests.
