Fujitsu has announced the flagship ultrabook LifeBook U938 with a proprietary user identification system for drawing blood vessels PalmSecure palm. This is one of the most reliable ways to protect the device, and the company has already agreed with Microsoft on the support of this technology in Windows Hello.
How it works?
The device directs infrared radiation, which is well absorbed by the restored hemoglobin in the blood. When the sensor captures the reflected from the palm of the hand, the image shows a pattern of veins in the form of black lines. It is compared to the saved template, and in case of a match the computer will be unlocked.
Such a system is not easy to deceive. These are not fingerprints, which we leave almost on everything that we touch. In addition, the figure is read only if the blood moves along the vessels.
