3M Mobile ID Reader makes security checks quickerThis new 3M Mobile ID Reader could soon be used at events or in situations that require tight security. The idea is that it would scan your identification quickly to prove that you are who you say you are. Then you can be on your way in no time. It works like a credit card scanner and it would be used to scan things like your Visa card or passport, cross checking that info with watch lists of those who are threats.

It runs on Windows Mobile 6 and features WiFi, GSM/GPRS EDGE and a fingerprint sensor. It also has 8GB of storage for keeping track of those that have been scanned. That way they can leave all of that data sitting around somewhere and screw us all. Let’s hope not.

Fingerprint recognition the future of credit?
The loss or misplacement of credit cards is a common worry. No one wants a thief to find it and go on a spending spree. You may not have to worry about it much longer, thanks to this new product in development. It’s a collaboration by Swiss company AXSionics and Siemens.

It’s in the shape and size of your average credit card, only a little thicker due to the fingerprint reader, an LCD display and a few optical sensors. It works just like a typical ATM or credit card but is far more secure. It will only work in the original card user’s hands. The company claims that the system can be put in place without any additional software on all commonly used PCs or laptops being needed. It’s in the process of being tested by several banks in Germany and Switzerland.
