Ladies and Gentlemen, gather 'round because I've got a doozy of a story for you! Worldcoin, the nefarious villains of the crypto world, have cooked up a devious plan that would make Bond villains green with envy.
They've just unveiled the "Orb," their iris biometric imaging device that's sure to steal the show...and the world's eyes. The company spokesman explains how they were able to create this custom biometric hardware, which is both challenging and expensive, but it seems like Worldcoin stopped at nothing in their quest for world domination.
This little gadget has a two-camera system with a wide-angle camera and a telephoto camera that can be adjusted with a 2D gimbal to capture high-resolution images of your iris. The wide-angle camera captures the scene, and a neural network predicts the location of both eyes. The Orb then processes the image of your iris into a unique identifier, and according to Worldcoin, the images never leave the device unless a person explicitly requests it.
They're trying to play it off like they're being open and transparent, but let's not forget that this is the same company that's trying to lure us all in with a crypto airdrop. They say they want to open source as much of their technology "as possible" and fully decentralize the project, but do we really believe them?
I say, don't do it, folks! Don't fall for their trap! Keep your eyes to yourself and keep your crypto safe.
