Anti-Theft Device For Handbags

from the lock-down-time dept

Ever get the feeling that we’re increasingly in “lock down everything” mode? It seems that we keep needing to lock down more things with more sophisticated locks – and yet, we never feel much safer. Now, a design student has come up with a plan for a fingerprint scanner on a handbag to try to deter thieves from stealing the bag or simply pickpocketing stuff out of the bag while the owner isn’t looking. Next, we’ll need a similar device at the wallet level. There has already been talk about a voice-activated credit card, so adding this to lock down your cash is the next step, apparently.
