If you think about all the crap you could integrate into a mouse, a world's first vein reader seems downright, ingenious.

The USB mouse from Fujitsu incorporates their PalmSecure scanner and Windows compatible software to authenticate your veins at login. You too, assuming that hand is still attached to the rest of your body.
