this is the first time i've heard mention of some of these biometrics (i.e. odor)...thanks for this i'll definitely read about a couple of these, although i think you missed a biometric technology that i personally find really interesting called the finger vein reader. It has applications from vending machines to workforce management. It's becoming really popular. you should check it out!
