Luxury luggage maker Heys USA is gearing up to introduce the first biometric suitcase, aptly named the BioCase. There are no keys needed to unlock this case, only the owner’s fingers.
The built-in biometric scanner memorizes up to eight fingerprints for 90 days, and it can be charged using a power adapter or USB plug.
The BioCase is expected to begin retailing in April 2009, and will come in two sizes, a 19-inch, hard-sided business case and a 20-inch carry-on piece. Both cases are lightweight and feature ergonomic, non-slip TRP comfort grips and fully lined interiors. In addition, they are touted as nearly indestructible.
Cool. If James Bond carries a suitcase, this is probably it.
