Microsoft launches hardware with finger print technology

Posted on Wednesday, September 08 2004 @ 23:42:02 CEST by

Microsoft is about to update their line of keyboards and mice with some new models. The main new feature appears to be the addition of finger print technology.
The main element to the update is the addition of finger print technology. Tried by other hardware makers, the technology hasn't really had much attention asides from high-end, security critical systems; with backing from a big player (the player?) the technology could go mainstream. Microsoft are integrating the technology into their hardware and software solutions, allowing users to give prints rather than passwords. A good move, increasing security and decreasing hassle for end users, as well as being pretty cool. No doubt, a popular addition to the hardware line. You can get the reader as a stand alone device (see screenshots below), or on an Optical Desktop with Fingerprint Reader, or finally on a Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer with Fingerprint Reader.
These new models will be available in 2005.
