Fujitsu intros first mouse with palm scanner

Fujitsu PalmSecure Mouse

Fujitsu today broke with conventional notions of security by unveiling its new PalmSecure mouse. Where most computers or mice rely on a fingerprint reader for biometric security, the new design picks up on the vein patterns in a user's palm. The scanner requires no special guides or fixed distance limits for the scan; a user can sit down at a computer and casually place their hand right over the mouse before grabbing it to use the computer in question. The mouse otherwise works as a conventional USB mouse and comes with software to use the palm reader in place of passwords or other security measures.

No official price or release date has been set for the PalmSecure controller, which will be available soon in black, gray, and white along with a PC Login Kit which serves as a dedicated reader for systems with separate mice. Fujitsu plans to release either device worldwide.
