  • Token is a fledgling hardware company that just introduced its first product: the Token ring, an identity ring designed to store your credentials and secure your privacy with a fingerprint sensor. Using just the ring, you can pay for goods, unlock your car, or ride the subway.

    The Token ring starts at $249 and is now available for presale. The first Token rings will start shipping in December.

    chopping it off is unrealistic, but some one uses it while the owner asleep or knocked out is realistic to me. also making it scan while being unaware is also possible

    Question: How does it shut down NFC functionality when removed, and how does it prevent an NFC miner from copying it if at all? For example, despite security, a modified car door opener sitting in a bag at an airport terminal can copy hundreds of credit cards per hour because the range of NFC is based on the powered device reading it. they can be put into NFC tags. Some are easily decrypted for use online. wouldn't this have the same vulnerability?

    The only thing I can think of is if the data is fully encrypted with the fingerprint scan and cannot be decrypted if copied to a tag. If that's the case I approve.

    best use would be locking guns so only the owner can fire.

    "Hence the Ident-i-Eeze. This encoded every single piece of information about you, your body and your life into one all- purpose machine-readable card that you could then carry around in your wallet, and therefore represented technology's greatest triumph to date over both itself and plain common sense."

    Other people say *"Wow! That's so cool. I want one."* but I'm thinking "This is a HUGE security risk. It's not hard get someone's fingerprint or to intercept the wireless signals. Plus, what if something happens to change the fingerprint or if the finger is amputated?"

    "so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark on their hands or their foreheads. The mark is the name of the beast or the number of its name."
    Revelation 13 vs 17.
    I could see this coming really fast. Been in Europe and in Belgium in some clubs you can only get in if your an implant on your head which has a SIM card that has all your informations on it. It's easy to get. That's the future. 10 years from now, it would be the norm everywhere.
