Nymi Offers Accessible, Secure Biometric Authentication

Nymi is preparing a new device that uses a person's unique 'cardiac rhythm' to generate control and authentication signals to computers, phones, kiosks, and all other compatible ICT products and services. The wristband picks up not just your heartbeat, but the entire audible pattern of your circulatory system, which is just as individual as a fingerprint. It transmits that pattern and other information, allowing you to log in and unlock whatever you want to use without having to enter a password or swipe a smartcard. This proximity biometric solution may have powerful accessibility implications, reducing user performance requirements while eliminating biometric barriers encountered by people lacking fingers, retinas, etc.
