What is it? It may not look like more than a sim­ple wrist­band, but the Nymi may change the way we in­ter­act with tech­nol­ogy. It uses an elec­tro­car­dio­gram to store a bio­met­ric pass­word based on your heart’s unique sig­na­ture (Heart ID?), so all you need to log in to your Mac, your iPhone or any of your other de­vices is to have a Nymi on your wrist. When’s it due? Full re­lease date TBC Why are we ex­cited? Aside from mak­ing log­ging in far more con­ve­nient, the Nymi could dras­ti­cally in­crease your de­vice’s se­cu­rity. Even if some­one did man­age to find out your pass­word, they still couldn’t get into your tech with­out a Nymi, or in­deed you, ren­der­ing their hack­ing ef­forts fu­tile. It’s cur­rently still in de­vel­op­ment, but we’re ea­gerly await­ing its re­lease. It will come in black, white or red and two ad­justable sizes.
