Fingerprint Briefcase Keeps Your Stuff Safe?


There’s a new fingerprint briefcase that supposedly keeps your stuff safe using biometrics.

But as I’ve seen and actually done quite a few times, a standard biometric fingerprint scanner is easily defeated with a semi-melted gummy bear, photocopy or even a piece of tape.  So no, I wouldn’t trust this with anything much more than my lunch.

But hey, head on over to Geek.com and check out the post they did on it:

Chinavisions new Fingerprint Security Briefcase has a built-in fingerprint reader keeping your stuff safe, with a locking mechanism that stores up to twelve different users and two administrators, as well as the ability to store two fingerprints per user.
