Automated Immigration

Well now Incheon Airport is offering the very latest: automated immigration. That is right, when you pass to your international gate from the terminal, it will now be possible to show your passport to a machine that will confirm who you are and stamp your passport. I have not had the chance to try, but I will as soon as I can. One wonders whether passports and visa stamps are on their way to the ash bin of history.

 

After all, if we use Dr. Lee’s E-Positioning, we can make sure we know exactly where we are at any time. The key would be the effective integration of such systems with cyber-space representations.

 

Of course there are some implications of concern, but that for a later post.
