Fujitsu's palm-reading mouse finally on way

Biometric security device reads veins instead of fingerprints.


Palm-reading is coming to the desktop. Fujitsu's "PalmSecure" mouse may not foretell how long you'll live, but it does promise to provide some security in keeping intruders out of your PC.

The technology, which we first saw more than a year ago before it evolved into a mouse, is finally making its way to the North American market in June. As Engadget notes, it differs from biometric systems of the fingerprint variety by scanning veins, a system that the company claims is faster and more effective.

As for the lack of fortune-telling features, don't worry. We're guessing that a USB version from SolidAlliance or Brando can't be far off.
