Finnish scientists have developed a new anti-theft device for laptops, mobile phones, and other gadgets your carry with you. The new anti-theft device? It’s along the lines of bio-identification… it’s how you walk. Thumb prints are out.

The gadget monitors the user’s walking style the first time it’s used. Subsequent times, if the user’s walking style does not match the initial one, the user will be prompted for a password.

Sucks for those few weeks after you sprained your ankle, huh?

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
