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.
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.
