Consumers Will Pay More for Biometric Credit Card: SmartMetric Survey

What else might consumers pay for? Biometric credit card maker SmartMetric asked about biometric credit cards and, by golly, 67% said they’d pay $69.95 for one. SmartMetric matches a user’s fingerprint against a print stored on the card itself, so there’s no privacy-risking central database. Not a bad idea although a recent study found that fingerprint readers may not be all that secure. (If you want more security, EyeLock recently received a patent on linking iris authentication to facial imaging.)
