Blog: Leonie BarrieUnder lock - and fingerprint - key

Leonie Barrie | 22 June 2004

Imagine the scene. You want to open your handbag, but before you do so you have to run your finger over a biometric scanner. If it recognises you as the registered owner, a light flashes green, a latch is unlocked, and you can get into your bag. It sounds a bit far-fetched, but this anti-theft device could well be the next "must-have" fashion accessory for street-wise women. A great idea, and one that has just won an innovation award. But will it serve as more than a deterrent? As they say: 'A lock only keeps an honest thief.'
