    I just ordered one. Looks promising, I really want to test to see if it hold up to security and privacy like they claim. Worst case it's very interesting tech.:thumb:

    Because all we need is one more way to track every move. :thumb:

    It's going to be open-source apparently. I also don't see anything about it sending data back to a server. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens.

    I wonder if you're locked out after a heart attack that changes your pattern.

    Right.

    But little heart attacks are often ignored.

    Edit: So getting locked out would be a warning.

    I have been reseaching this and (while I am obviously not an expert in this field) from what I read your heat pattern is alway unique to you, and doesn't change enough - through age or heart attack, that would be noticeably different or effect this type of authentication.

    That said I hope some one with expertise pipes in and lets us know. It is very cool technology here and I am eager to get more facts about how it works.

    That's good to know.

    I did look on their website, but didn't see much of anything.

    What exactly is this "electrical activity generated by your heart"? Is it constantly the same, even when factoring in mood, environment, age, injury, and disease? Cause otherwise I can see some lock-out scenarios when you're in trouble.
