Fujitsu Creates the World’s Smallest Vein Sensor

vein sensor

Fujitsu’s vein sensor is the world’s smallest and slimmest.

Technology to make biometric security useful is already in place.  Manufacturers are making biometric security more efficient, and usable. Fujitsu has created the world’s smallest and slimmest vein sensor. The vein sensor recognizes the veins on the palm of a person’s hand, unlike a fingerprint sensor that reads a user’s finger prints in order to verify a person’s identit.   The user just has to hold their palm lightly over the sensor in order to use it.  The user doesn’t even have to touch the sensor, eliminating any hygienic issues.

German Researchers Develop Biotech Sensor Bracelet, Disposable Blood Lab


A Wrist Full of Diagnosis

Biochips — flexible, disposable plastic circuits that “compute” via chemical reaction — have been nearing reality for over a decade, but for obvious reasons we don’t always pay attention. German research institute Fraunhofer IZM has just convinced us it’s high time we did. This week, the organization announced that it’s on the verge of creating a lab-on-a-chip that can diagnose deep vein thrombosis from a single drop of blood, as well as a wristband that can measure body temperature, skin moisture and electromagnetic radiation using plastic chips and sensors only micrometers thick. Impressive, yes, but the real news is the production process — these gadgets can be printed in reels and sheets.
