Most of use passwords to access our favorite accounts online. If your phone or computer has a fingerprint scanner, you may be able to get around that. Nymi takes a different approach. It lets you use your unique cardiac rhythm to authenticate your identity and take control of your computer, smartphone, or even your car. It also lets you stay connected by allowing you to customize notifications for emails, texts, and social updates.
Once you put Nymi on and place your finger on the topside sensor while your wrist is in the contact with the bottom sensor, you are ready to get started. Your Nymi will recognize your identity as long as it is on your wrist. This is like a 3-factor authentication system. You will need to have your wearable device, heartbeat, and an authorized authentication device to get started.
The Nymi has integrated accelerometer and gyroscope to understand your gestures. Its Bluetooth-based proximity detection knows how far away you are from things you want to control. Developers will be able to use the SDK available for Nymi to explore its potential. Like what you see? You can get yours for $79.[Source]
