Microsoft announces a line of input devices with fingerprint readers (biometrical sensor) for access control.

Microsoft introduces three fingerprint devices. One standalone fingerprint sensor, a keyboard with a fingerprint sensor built-in and a intellimouse with fingerprint sensor bundle.
The fingerprint keyboard is a interesting concept, because there is no need to place another gadget on the desk. The Microsoft Optical Desktop with Fingerprint reader keyboard will be available in October. The standalone reader in November and the Mouse Reader bundle in January.
