Until someone discovers an easy way to compromise fingerprint security scanners, they’ll be making their way into more and more devices that have typically required you to memorize a password or combination.
Take this run-of-the-mill safe for example. The traditional spinning combination lock or numeric keypad has been replaced with a considerably easier to use fingerprint reader. And like with any device that uses this means of security, a simple swipe of your digit will lock or unlock your valuables. Unfortunately I have no idea how many users this safe supports (probably just one), what kind of abuse it can survive (fire etc.), or how long the 4 AA batteries will remember your prints.
You can find it at Gadget Universe for $399.95 and because it weighs close to 30 lbs, you’ll have to add an extra $19.95 for shipping charges.
