A fingerprint safe recommended by the NRA

It looks like something from the USS Enterprise.

This certainly isn't the first personal safe that's controlled by biometrics, but its design is a definite improvement over previous models we've seen. The "BioVault 2.0 Fingerprint Safe" from Sequiam Biometrics has the kind of futuristic look that's appropriate for a security technology of the future--in fact, it reminds us of the Enterprise's sliding doors on the original Star Trek.

It does seem kind of curious, however, that one of its highly touted features is the ability to work with the fingerprints of up to 50 people; we thought the idea was to keep the virtual "combination" a secret. Maybe that has something to do with its official endorsement by the NRA: It can be used to store a few emergency firearms accessible to all members of the neighborhood militia.
