Whether it's fingerprint readers, retina scanners or voice activated security, consumers have always been fascinated by biometric technology.
So we were naturally excited when Fujitsu PC announced that their latest notebook computer, the LifeBook N3510, boasts a built-in fingerprint reader for the protection of personal and private files.
In what is sure to become a favourite for none other than James Bond, the fingerprint scanner uses capacitance sensor-based technology - which in basic terms is a device that uses electrical signals to create an image of the fingerprint ridge and patterns.
Fujitsu claims the reader scans fingerprint images beneath the actual skin surface, which reduces the need for multiple scans and ensures accuracy. Sounds nifty.
