Fujitsu turns mice into palm readers

Biometric devices scan vein patterns.


If Fujitsu seems obsessed with the human palm, there's good reason: The company sees it as a key to the future. After experimenting with various forms of its "PalmSecure" technology, the company has come up with a mouse that can double as a palm reader for computer and network security.

Fujitsu calls the device "the world's first mouse capable of scanning the pattern of veins in the user's hand," according to Gizmo Watch. The company claims that palm-reading sensors are easier to use than competing biometric mice that scan fingerprints. We hope they resist any temptation to bling out this useful device, for credibility reasons if not for the sake of taste.
