Fingerprints are used to identify individuals in a variety of situations. After all, everybody is unique with their own special biological mix up. What if you could use your uniqueness as an access tool with more than just your fingerprint? The Nymi is a band that will let you use your own electrocardiogram as a biometric identifier.
This wearable uses your heart’s unique signature to identify you for secure accesses. Most people probably don’t realize that your heart has a beat all of its own but it does! You can’t really hear it or see it without mechanical help but it’s there, and the Nymi wants to harness it to make your life easier.
The band will be paired with devices and other services to create seamless access in their daily lives. Instead of remembering passwords, cards, and keys, you can use this band to gain access to the important things in your life. Right now only developer kits are available to help create applications for use with the product. If you’re crafty that way, you can pick up a Nymi band for $149.
