We have already read about a palm-reading ATM machine which delivers a greater level of security compared to the regular PIN number, so it is not surprising to read about how Fujitsu is currently experimenting with biometric sensors, potentially seeing those being implemented in tablets as well as other mobile devices in the future. This particular authentication sensor is very small – so much so that it measures just 5mm in size, and that clearly places it in pole position to see action in mobile consumer electronics devices such as tablets. Fujitsu has already relied on its PalmSecure technology that is capable of reading users’ palm vein patterns without the need for physical contact with the sensor. Currently however, this extremely thin module remains in an experimental stage, so hopefully enough research and development will nudge it to a commercial release in due time.
