5313First country to use iris scans on ID cardsMexicofirstMexico, 24 January 2011Mexico became the first country to begin using iris-scanning technology for identity cards on 24 January 2011. The technique uses the fact that the pattern of the iris in a person’s eye is unique and can be identified by looking into a special camera at an immigration control desk. According to Mexican government sources, the procedure is 99 per cent reliable and the ID card will include fingerprints as well as an image of the cardholder’s eye. The new cards will be introduced gradually with a reported 28 million juveniles taking part in the first, two-year stage at cost US$25 million (£15.6 million). Cards for Mexican adults will become available from 2013.

5318First operational pendulum clockA pendulum clock by Dutch horologist Christiaan HuygensfirstNetherlands, 01 January 1656The Italian scientist Galileo Galilei (1564–1642) was among the first to observe that the steady, predictable rate of a pendulum’s swing made it ideal for use in timekeeping. The first ever fully operational clock powered by a pendulum was built in 1656 by Dutch horologist Christiaan Huygens (1629–95). Initially accurate to within a minute per day, later refinements brought this down to around 10 seconds. By the end of the century, pendulum clocks were keeping time to within 0.5 seconds per day – accurate enough to warrant the introduction of the first-ever second hand.See also First pendulum clock design
