Fujitsu biometric palm scanner

It's nice to know someone's looking out to protect us against all those latex-mold equipped identity-forging criminals looking to gain access into the top secret vaults of our finger-scanning biometric USB drives. Fujitsu's demoing a new infrared palm scanner called the Contactless Palm Vein Authentication System (CPVAS, eh?), which instead of scanning fingerprints, scans vein structures in the user's hand without actually making contact with the hand. Apparently they've already perfected it to within a 0.5% false acceptance rate—certainly pretty decent for a prototype. As always, just make sure not to get your hand chopped off by corporate spies, okay?
