    Iowa replaces drivers license with app

    Digital license will display rotatable 3-D photo

    From Apple

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - Iowa is taking plastic drivers licenses into the digital age.

    Next year, the Iowa Department of Transportation will experiment with issuing drivers licenses via an app. The digital license will display a 3-D photo of the driver's face, which can be rotated side to side so law enforcement can better match the licensee to the picture.

    "Really, it's about giving customers a choice," said Andrea Henry, spokeswoman for the Iowa Department of Transportation. "We're in an increasingly mobile world, and there are so many things that are connected to your mobile phone."

    The story was first reported in the Des Moines Register.

    Since drivers licenses are used for official government identification, the app will be secured with a PIN code. Henry said it could also be secured with a finger print or facial recognition software as well.

    That could actually make the digital license safer than the plastic alternative, helping the state cut down on identity theft, impersonations and fake IDs.
    But people who want to stick with their plastic license will also be given that option -- or they can ask to have both a plastic license and an app.

    The Iowa transportation department has been testing out the app for about a year, and it will deploy the digital drivers licenses to its employees first as a test group. The state hasn't yet set a date for when the digital licenses will be available to the public.

    Yes, I saw that too and thought it was a great idea. Lots of other states and countries out there still, so not too late for some talented developers to make a splash by getting a government contract.

    The police are rubbing their collective hands together in the hopes that this will go big. Then people will willingly hand them their unlocked phones for police examination in the car. No warrant needed.

    Mr Police Officer, I can Bluetooth, WiFi, NFC, a self destructing copy of my license to you so that you can view it on your phone and fuck off from mine. :)

    Problem solved.


    PS. I have nothing bad to say about the Police, the above was just a joke.

    Its the digitalisation area.Everything which can be digitalised will be changed.There wont be anymore keys to cars example but only special apps for it.
    This was a hot topic on stocks because the digitalisation will have a massiv impact on new unemployment since there wont be people anymore needed to produce these goods as everything will be digitalised
