Sports stadiums in Seattle introduce CLEAR fingerprint technology

If you're heading to the Pearl Jam gig at the Safeco Field, you can expect to stand in line.  From security lines to lines to buy food and drink.

But you'll able to sprint through those lines a little faster, if you're willing to give up your fingerprint.

Safeco and Century Link Fields have signed onto a program already used at SeaTac Airport.  It's a form of biometric technology called CLEAR.

Bill Radke spoke to Geekwire reporter Kurt Schlosser and Woodrow Hartzog, Professor of Computer Science and Law at Northeastern University about the risks and benefits to fans.
