When it comes to security, fingerprint authentication is leading the way in the industry with everything from smartphones, to computers incorporating it with the 'Cashew' Smart Wallet being the latest product to do so.
Currently funding on Kickstarter, the 'Cashew' Smart Wallet works by allowing owners to set their unique fingerprint and open only if it is detected. Up to 20 different prints can be stored to allow family or friends access, if desired.
Aside from featuring fingerprint authentication, the 'Cashew' Smart Wallet is, naturally, a connected device that can be located with your smartphone and even buzzed. The internal rechargeable battery can last up to nine months on a single charge before needing to be powered up.
If tampering is detected by the 'Cashew' Smart Wallet, it will lock out the user and automatically send you a notification.
