A Cross-Platform Fingerprint USB Drive

MacMerc has posted an interesting article on a new USB Flash Drive with fingerprint authentication.

[The Bio USB Flash Drive is] a new biometric USB Flash Drive featuring software-free operation and a large font LCD display … [with] the built-in capability of generating a One-Time Password from a fingerprint match. … Because no software is required to run on the host PC, FingerGear’s Bio USB is truly portable and cross platform compatible among Windows, Macintosh, and Linux machines that have a standard USB port.

I am rather interested in this little gadget, not only because of the level of security that it offers, but also because of its cross-platform capabilities.
