'Fingerprint Safe' can take the heat

Biometric safe withstands 1,700-degree temperaturess


We never did think much of personal safes that respond to voice commands or come in froufrou colors. When it comes to protecting our personal belongings, we're traditionalists--as in, we don't need anything too fancy, just something that won't get us ripped off.

So even though the "Fingerprint Safe" isn't the old-fashioned dial variety from the Bonnie and Clyde era, we appreciate its combination of old and new with formidable hardware and biometric access. The new part, of course, is the technology that can recognize up to 10 fingerprints (as well as a key and digital code, in case the reader is buggy). The old? As Uber-Review notes, it can withstand temperatures up to 1,700 degrees for a full hour.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
