Nothing makes you look more important than carrying around a briefcase. But whether it’s filled with plans for world domination, or just your lunch, you don’t want those important contents falling into the wrong hands. So why trust a combination lock that can be opened with one lucky guess, when you can secure your files, or PB&J sandwich, with biometrics?
Covered with supple Nubuck leather and lined with soft suede this briefcase makes it look like you’ve just stepped off Wall Street, but it protects your secrets, or your true identity, with a fingerprint reader. The locking mechanism supports up to 12 different users and 2 administrators (not really sure what extra privileges they’re granted) and can store 2 different fingerprints for each user. Now since it’s not a mechanical system the fingerprint reader does need to be occasionally charged via USB (the lithium-ion battery is good for about 600 scans) and I’m not sure what fail-safes exist if the battery dies and you need access, so maybe keeping one of those USB backup batteries in your pocket isn’t a terrible idea. Get it from Chinavasion for about $390.
