    epson develops super-thin pinkie sensor
    Seiko Epson has developed a 0.2mm-thin sensor that can read fingerprints by picking up the tiny electrical currents coming from your little finger.The company is touting the technology as a way to offer an extra level of security for items such as credit cards, which would work with embedded memory to authenticate the real owner before allowing transactions. The technology should be on the market by 2010

    Seiko Epson Developing Tiny Portable Fingerprint Sensors

    Seiko Epson is commercializing a tiny 0.2mm fingerprint sensor that will allow manufacturers to secure any kind of mobile device. The sensor reads fingerprints by detecting the miniscule electric current from your finger when you touch the device.Possible applications are self-identifying credit cards, cellphones, and MP3 players. When a wrong fingerprint is entered, that item is disabled, so your credit cards won’t be charged and your phones won’t be used to make strange calls. Unless they take out your SIM and stick it in another phone, that is. Then you’re screwed.
