Wristband Turns Your Heartbeat Into A Unique Password, Unlocks Multiple Devices
By Dorothy Tan, 06 Sep 2013
A more secure password is a growing concern in our increasing tech-fueled world—other than logging in with your face, you can now turn your heartbeat into a unique password.
Developed by biometric technology company Bionym Inc., the Nymi wristband identifies its wearer by their heartbeat and uses it as a password for multiple devices, from a computer to a car.
The Nymi technology is based on the fact that “like a fingerprint, your heartbeat is unique”—after putting on the Nymi wristband and activating it, you stay authenticated with your devices until you take it off.
Working via an app on your smartphone, this high-tech wristband can be used to create a “smart, password and key-free environment” where you can unlock the doors at home, get into your car and log into your computer with a wave of your hand.
You can now pre-order the Nymi wristband at US$79 here—it is expected to ship in early 2014.
Watch the video below to see how it can be used to make your life easier and more secure.
