Seeing a fingerprint scanner while out and about is nothing new, after all, the technology exists in laptops, smartphones and a plethora of other gadgets and gizmos. What sets the Nexus fingerprint scanner apart from others is in the smaller details.
Those smaller details are the same small detail that keeps us alive. The new scanner system, which is currently undergoing a trial run at the School of Mines and Technology in South Dakota, is practically hack proof thanks to its biometric scanning abilities. In other words, before a purchase can be made by fingerprint, the system not only scans the fingerprint, but measures the pulse to make sure the purchaser is alive and well, as well as demanding a birthday to match up a pre-existing account in the school's database.
Sorry students, you won't be able to hack off a hand to buy your text books this year.
