Just like everyone has a unique fingerprint, every also has a unique heartbeat (sounds kind of romantic, right?). A new gadget uses technology to take advantage of your heart-print to serve as a key to all your technology. Which is big news if you’re someone who struggles with remembering the bajillion passwords that everyone has.
The Nymi uses an ECG (electrocardiography) sensor in a bracelet you wear on your wrist. If you’re not the person wearing the bracelet, the wristband will lockdown, as will your devices. Though this does kind of leave us wondering what happens if someone needs to borrow your phone, the idea of forgetting all the passwords we’re always trying to remember IS pretty appealing.
So what do you think? Vote in the poll now and tell us if you’re ready for a heartbeat password to be the next big thing!
