Who Needs Keys? SmartScan Biometric Scanning Opens Doors to Our Future


Keys are so 20th century. Who has the time to reach into their pocket, choose the correct key, put it in the keyhole, turn the key and push the door open? I sure as hell don’t. That’s why, if I owned a house, I’d look at Kwikset’s SmartScan biometric scanning door opening solution. (Everything’s a solution these days.) With the mere swipe of your finger, the lock unlocks, allowing entry to your domicile. You can program SmartScan to work with fingers other than your own (your lazy kids’ or your ungrateful wife’s, for instance) or at specified times.

Such mind-bending technology will set you back $200. Rosie the Robot not included.
