Episode Tease

Fingerprint readers are well established in all but the lowest cost smartphones - look at the Moto G-series for phones priced around $200 - and it's a trusted solution. So it's not surprising that fingerprint readers are now appearing in other devices such as padlocks and bike locks. BIO-key are fingerprint specialists and have a range of locks and readers that do away with keys and passwords. Todd unlocks the potential of his finger with Scott.

BIO-key's locks can be opened by a range of technologies depending on the model. Most use fingerprints, but others also have Bluetooth capabilities and some use PIN codes. There are some real benefits in using a fingerprint for unlocking - no key to lose, no combination to remember.

Prices start at $39.99 for the TouchLock Designer, and a TSA approved lock is $54.95.

BIO-key produce fingerprint readers for PCs too, so if you don't want to type in your password, check out these USB devices.
