Biometric FingerGear USB flash drive

FingergearIn a move sure to appeal to security conscious mobile professionals Atmel introduced the FingerGear, a flash memory drive that has a fingerprint sensor to protect the stored data.  Swiping your finger across the sensor authenticates you as an authorized user and permits access to the sensitive information stored on the FingerGear.  All of the biometric security software is resident on the flash drive so the FingerGear can be used on computers running Windows, Linux, OS X or any other operating system that is USB host compliant.  These are the same folks that produce the Computer-on-a-Stick, which is also available with the fingerprint sensor.  $149 with 256 MB of memory.
