Fingerprint A company known as SmartMetric ordered a press release today announcing the development of what they tout as the first ‘affordable’ fingerprint scanner for credit cards and similar sized IDs. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of such tech, but if they can hold up to the ‘affordable’ aspect, it may not be too long before we place our thumb instead of our John Hancock to make a purchase. Could also be applied to other fields of use such as identity and access cards via RF communication.

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."
