Sony mofiria secures devices with vein recognition

Sony mofiria secures devices with vein recognitionThere are many biometric devices on the market, but honestly we haven’t seen any of them really hit it big with the masses. Sony is probably hoping to change that with their just announced Mofiria, a high speed, compact biometric solution for mobile devices.

Just like Fujitsu’s PalmSecure, it uses near infrared LEDs and a CMOS sensor to take a picture of your veins. News to me, but apparently vein patterns vary enough from person to person and don’t change through life. So they are a perfect thing to use for authentication. And perfect for Sony to make an extra buck with.

Fingerprint recognition the future of credit?

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.
