A fingerprint door lock for the 'burbs

This biometric-controlled lock can be purchased for only $249

Fingerprint door lock

With another Bond movie fast approaching, the timing for this item seems propitious. A biometrics company called Sequiam is marketing a battery-powered deadbolt lock that can is activated only with the swipe of an authorized fingerprint.

Perhaps most remarkable is not the technology but its price: $249, a fraction of what one would expect to pay for a product of Ian Fleming's imagination. Homeowners may also appreciate the nondescript appearance of the system, which uses a Black and Decker lock that would be inconspicuous on any front door. Now if only we could get our hands on a Cone of Silence to go with it, we'd be all set. (Thanks to Robert D. for the tip.)
