It’s really nothing special to find a safe that is opened with a key, since most safes will open with either a key or a combination lock. Now what if that key is a USB key? That would certainly change things up a bit. This interesting BioMirage Coffer is the first safe that I’ve seen that not only uses a USB key to open, but will also open up to the touch of a finger.
The primary method of unlocking will no doubt be the biometric scanner, as it would be the easiest method. The USB key is mainly there as a backup measure in case the scanner goes out, or you accidentally lose your hand. It seems like a cool replacement for your average storage safe, but the $580 price tag makes it highly impractical.
