Capable? I believe facial recognition systems are capable of recording bio
metric data.
If you had really high resolution cameras (maybe 4k cameras) then you MIGHT
be able to get a iris scan of of people passing by.
You could have DNA samples automatically taken and sent somewhere but the
problem would be processing the volume of DNA.
One way you could solve this is through aggregation.
Fingerprints would be interesting to store, hard to map back to people and
demographics would be useless.
