Fingerprint sensors are nothing new. It's a common thing for computers, and the abnormally paranoid can secure their homes with fingerprint-sensitive locks. However, the sensors themselves have remained relatively thick.

That is, until Seiko Epson came along and unveiled this super-thin fingerprint reader. Seiko boasts that this sensor is so small that it could fit anything, such as a credit card.Credit cards so seem to be the big target with this technology, most likely because of the uprise in identity theft. And hey, if MP3 players can get their own theft prevention mechanism, then credit cards do too.

The ultra-thin sensor will reportedly be available by 2010.

Check out all the other fingerprint sensor devices that there are.
