Fingerprint-activated cards close to market: SmartMetric

Fintech company SmartMetric said in a release this week its fingerprint-activated cards are close to market.

SmartMetric said it had to overcome several issues in order to reach this point, the most recent being a problem with a metal bezel on a third party fingerprint sensor component which was discovered during the mass production stage.

“It is one thing to build a product in a lab, it is another thing to have the same product pass all the quality and performance issues while under manufacture,” SmartMetric president and CEO Chaya Hendrick said. A new touch sensor not needing a bezel and made of fewer components is in production.

SmartMetric said the new cards should be out of mass production by early March.
