You can open the iFingerLock with your fingerprint alone

Everyone has lost their keys at some point but it’s a lot harder to lose your fingers. That’s why a new biometric padlock is a godsend for people who are prone to mislaying their stuff. Its sensors let you use your fingerprint as the key and store those of your friends so that they can also use it.

The iFingerlock, which is available on Amazon, is a biometric padlock that can recognize the user’s fingerprint. It opens when you slide your fingers over it, by scanning your digits and matching them to its records. The lock can store up to ten fingerprints, so you can give other people access without the hassle of lending or copying keys.
