At Healthcare Scene we love a well played April Fool’s day joke. We’ve done a few of our own over the years, but with April Fool’s day being on Saturday this year we’ll probably pass. However, it will still be fun to watch this weekend.

In a pretty smart move, Stack Overflow rolled there’s out early when they announced the next step in computer security called Dance Dance Authentication. Check out the video for more details (and a great Friday laugh):

They also have a blog post out about it with these priceless quotes:

“Computer security is always evolving. Passwords are “what you know.” Smart cards are “what you have.” We decided to ask “how you do you.”

“This security update is the result of years of work, requiring advances in many fields such as computer vision, AI and advanced calisthenics.”

The creativity of humans will never cease to amaze me. Have a great weekend. Let us know if you implement this new Dance Dance Authentication in your hospital or practice.
