Everykey: The Wristband That Wants to Replace Your Passwords
Ashley Allen / 3 years ago
With Google Glass and Samsung Gear, the new paradigm of wearable devices is upon us. The latest upstart to step up is Everykey, a wristband that acts as a replacement for your passwords. It uses “military-grade encryption” to act like a form of tech-biometric replacement – your own virtual fingerprint. It can be coded to unlock your smartphone, tablet, computer, and even home security systems.
The device is customisable and is able to unlock an unlimited number of devices. It is waterproof with a battery life of about a month. In the event the device is lost or stolen, it can be remotely disabled, with a replacement available for a discount price with overnight shipping.
Everykey has raised $56,702 of its £100,000 goal, with nineteen days to go. The creators hope to ship the device to backers in March 2015.
