No doubt a great Innovation, but finger print scanning is already used at alot of places for security purposes. Finger print scanners provide the same application as this touch screen is providing. You just have to integerate the scanner with the system. I believe the way it will actually be of more use is when it detects your finger prints in run time, while you are using the touch pannel. And the screen should only be workable for the desired person.

Good security, but not sure I'd want to use it

This seems like a real breakthrough for security but at the moment, I'm not sure I'd want to use it. I think I'd like to wait for the technology to be tested well and perfected, as I think touchscreens can still be a bit buggy and I would hate to be locked out of my phone because the screen can't register my fingerprints. I'm sure the technology works well, but I'd approach using it with caution for now.

Good point, Liz. Many people have problems learning to use touch screens. As great as this technology potentially is, it would add another layer of difficulty to the learning process.

Banks are motivated to make online technology easier and elder-friendly.  Since this could make online banking more secure, they'll find a way to make it simple easy.

Is this the same techinology used for biometric, or so-called smart guns?

@taimoor – yes it's a great innovation, I always wanted to understand why a touchscreen device cannot detect the fingerprint.

@Elizabeth – Yes it could be a flop, I think it's always better to stay for the technology to establish itself. I am sure it won't take that long it only requires some patience.

@Charles – I am not too sure why, but I always find the tough screen easier to use, may be because I am use to it now.

@NadineJ – This could be used for various purposes mainly to strengthen security. As you said this could enhance security of banking services.

Despite the innovation here, I have read some of the new cell-phones coming out in the latter half of 2013 will feature this type of tech to some extent. So... this team better hurry up.
