Sony USB Human Vein ReaderYou learn something new every day. Today I learned that Sony has been working on a new bio technology that reads vein structure of a human hand. The project is called “Mofiria.”
Object behind this project is taking the biometric finger reading technology one step further, and using vein structure as the authentication code [after all we have all seen movies where a fake silicon finger gets the burglars in]. So now the biometric technology is all buttoned up, Sony developed a USB vein reader that users could implement in the field. A bit crazy I must agree, but necessary for high level security where finger prints aren’t enough. The Sony USB vein reader will begin to ship mid December 2009 with an undisclosed price.
