We last heard about Sony’s Mofiria vein authentication system in February and then poof, nothing more on the tech. That is until today. Sony is set to release the FVA-U1, which is based on the Mofiria technology and plugs into any USB enabled device that can accept the necessary security protocols. The FVA-U1 will launch December 18th and cost Y30,000 ($350 US).
Vein identification, as opposed to finger print scanning is the next evolution in biometric security since it is far more difficult to replicate and requires, from my understanding, that the finger or person be alive – no more chopping the hand off Mr. Terrorist.
