Technology remains a key weapon in the fight against terrorism. The Transportation Security Administration and the U.S. Coast Guard are expanding the Transportation Worker Identification Credential program. The TWIC requires the nearly 1 million longshoremen, sailors, truck drivers and other laborers in the U.S. to use tamper-resistant smart cards when they enter U.S. port facilities. The TSA recently approved four biometric readers from Sagem Morpho. These point-of-entry readers use TWIC Privacy Keys to read encrypted biometric data such as digital fingerprints.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
