Synthetic Iris


Naresh developed a computer model of the human iris (the coloured bit in your eye) for his project, supervised by Peter McOwan. His model used an understanding of the biology actually involved in the growth of your iris. He turned this biological information into a computer simulation which gives the computer generated iris its realistic appearance.

Application of this method could be in computer graphics for movies, or for testing iris scan security systems. An expert in the use of iris scanning for identification from Cambridge University said Naresh's irises were the most realistic synthetic ones he had seen.

Naresh went on to become a start up company entrepreneur
