The Fujitsupalm vein biometric authentication solution will be unveiled during Biometric Consortium Conference 2010. he Fujitsu PalmSecure sensor uses a near-infrared light to capture a user’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against the palm vein patterns of pre-registered users. Unlike other readers, a PalmSecure device does not come into contact with the skin, making it extremely hygienic, non-intrusive and unrestricted by external factors such as skin abrasions, conditions or chemical damages. This advanced, contactless technology is applicable across industries, including healthcare, government, banking and education.
In addition, PalmSecure technology delivers highly accurate authentication that is virtually impossible to forge, leaves behind no biometric trace and generates extremely low false positive and false negative rates. Already in use in hundreds of organizations globally, PalmSecure biometric authentication has successful applications in healthcare patient registration, time and attendance management, physical access control, government identity management, PC user authentication, and OEM terminal devices, including point-of-sale (POS) systems and ATMs.
I wonder if I will see the day where I do not need a PIN code to get money from an ATM.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
