CeBIT 2014 is done, and it's high time that we say goodbye to the Hannover Messe. Of course, much of CeBIT's thunder has been stolen by Mobile World Congress and IFA, but given the interesting products that we've stumbled upon here, there's clearly still some life in the show. We hope that you enj

For all the popularity of fingerprint scanners, Fujitsu believes that it can go one better. The Japanese company has been working on palm-based systems for the last few years, and we've already seen turnstiles, wallets and tablets that are accessed from your hand. Fujitsu believes that palm vein s
