True identity isn’t in your fingertips, argues Fujitsu. It’s in your blood. The company’s newest biometric mouse uses infrared cameras to look beneath your hand’s skin and map its pattern of veins as a substitute for entering a password.

That vein-pattern recognition system is 99.9992% accurate, the company says–far greater than fingerprint systems, which often suffer from dirty sensors or hands and can sometimes be spoofed with copied prints. On a morbid note, even chopping someone’s hand off won’t allow a would-be intruder access: A lack of blood flow would change the hand’s capillary pattern, Fujitsu says.
