➡️ More gadgets like this

Don’t you get tired of having to remember passwords for all the services that you use? I know I do. You could always use a fingerprint scanner to authenticate your identity and log on to your favorite services. The Nymi takes a different approach. It is a wearable device that uses your heartbeat to authenticate you and save you from having to deal with passwords. The Nymi uses your unique cardiac rhythm to authenticate your identity, so you can control your computer, smartphone, and other devices.

The device is simple to use. As soon as you put it around your wrist and place your finger on the topside sensor, your Nymi starts going to work. You will stay authenticated as long as you have your wearable device on. This is essentially a 3-factor security system. You will need your Nymi, your heartbeat and registered devices to get things done. The Nymi uses Bluetooth proximity detection to keep you connected. Its accelerometer and gyroscope allow for gesture recognition. You can customize notifications for e-mail, text, and social updates easily. Did we mention that the Nymi is developer friendly? You can get yours for $79.
