The bUNIT. A credit card sized personal authentication device for the Bloomberg service. One of the winners of the IDEA 2005. Nice looking toy, eh?
The bUNIT is a personal authentication device that allows customers to access proprietary Bloomberg services and ensures their data is protected from unauthorized access. The design manages to combine a fingerprint scanner, status screen, photo sensor and series of microchips into an ultra compact credit-card-sized package. The design is its own instruction of use, guiding a user through the authentication process via physical and onscreen cues.
