This Security System Will Get Unlock Through Heartbeat

Yes, you read the title correctly. Forget about the Iris scanner of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8. Also, the Touch ID of iPhone 8 is soon to be obsolete. You can even ignore and move on from the Facial ID introduced in iPhone X! It’s time for a new security system featuring unlock through heartbeat technology. 

This Security System Will Get Unlock Through Heartbeat

So, raise your hands if you are not worried at all about the security of your smartphones, phablets, tablets, laptops, and computers. Probably you have not raised your hands.

Thus, you must be worried and wish to secure your computing experience more? The new research is indicating that you only need to set or place your heart on it.

To lock or unlock a device with the multi-character security passwords has become obsolete.

Heartbeats Security

The researchers at the University of Buffalo devised a security system that can open only through a signal from the user’s heart.

The design of the security layer will measure your heart by using the Doppler radar of low-level.

For the first time, it will need around 8 seconds for scanning your heart’s shape, size, and rhythm. From then onwards, it will continue to remotely monitor your heart.

Wenyao Xu, who is also heading this project, says that this system has no underlying health risks for the user. He works as an Assistant Professor at the Dept. of Computer Science & Engineering of the university.

He explains, that the overall strength of radar’s signals is even lower than the Wi-Fi. Precisely, it is about five milliwatts. This makes it even lesser than the 1% of the electromagnetic waves generated from our cell phones.

According to Wenyao Xu, this security system is completely fool-proof as we have never found the instances of identical hearts in the medical history.

It Is More Beneficial Than Other Security Systems

Heartbeat Unlock

It took almost three years to devise this system. This new ‘unlock through heart’ technology has multiple benefits as compared to the other security methods, such as the iris and fingerprint scanning systems.

The new security system solely functions on the user’s heart. Hence, it does not require any external input by the user. While using this system, you just have to be close to your computers to unlock the device.

As it will monitor the corresponding single user, it won’t work for others if the owner is not around the PC. Therefore, the users do not have to be concerned about the logging options when they are not around.

Wenyao Xu thinks that the present log-in and log-out trend is annoying in everyday routine. He urges to employ this contemporary security system on every single computer to ensure everyone’s privacy.

According to a study by New Atlas, the earlier inspection shows excellent accuracy results of this system, i.e., 98.61%, with a 4.42% error rate. The range of this security system is 98 feet (30 meters).

Wrapping It Up

The Xu and the team will show their research to the world at the upcoming mobile computing conference, MobiCom. They will exhibit how the system will unlock through heartbeat.

Other than that, the idea is to reduce the size of this system. The shrinking size will allow the system to be mounted on the edges of the laptops and computers.

Pebblebee Finder – Tiniest Device to find your Lost Valuable

Published

on

By

Pebblebee Finder

Pebblebee Finder is an innovation introduced by a small company named Pebblebee. The basic concept is to locate any missing item by using just a tiny Bluetooth-enabled device named as the Pebblebee Finder.

Pebblebee is a hardware manufacturing company that has been busy building small tracking devices namely the Honey and the Stone. The company was founded by two software engineers, Daniel Daoura and Nick Pearson-Franks. They both had a vision to build a useful but an affordable device that could track missing items using just Bluetooth.

The Company had a big support from Kickstarter, which is the world’s largest platform known for funding of companies for creative projects. This support was enough to let the company start the operations.

Pebblebee Finder

The Finder is the company’s recent innovation, or we could say an enhancement to their previous products. The new finder is a small device that can be attached to everything. The device works more efficiently with its own mobile app, named as Pebblebee, downloadable on iOS and Android.

Design/Build

This tiny round device is supposed to be made up of a high-grade stainless-steel that makes it highly durable. It contains a replaceable battery, loud speaker, LED light, a removable poly cap and of course the secret sauce!Pebblebee components

Assemble all these and you are ready to go. The device has a diameter of about 30×9 mm. It’s available in three colors – gunmetal black, rose gold and silver. All three versions have a same classy look.

Working

After assembling of the device, you have to attach it to the object that you think you can lose in the future. Now open the Pebblebee app on your phone and tap the “Find” button and the device will start to make a loud beep with a red LED flashing on the device.

You can also use the proximity map to locate the missing object. Open the proximity map and see where the missing object was last recorded. And there you go!

What makes it better?

As stated earlier, the Pebblebee has already introduced two devices in the past with the same purpose. So what’s new in the about-to-come Pebblebee Finder? Pebblebee Finder new featuresThese are what makes it better:

  • It’s made up of surgical stainless steel so the device is safe and durable at the same time.
  • You could find any lost object in the range of 200 feet, which was 150 feet in the previously introduced devices by the company.
  • The device works in opposite way as well. Means you could also use the ‘Finder’ to locate your mobile phone by squeezing the device itself.
  • The sound of the beep is now louder enough at 85 decibels so you can hear it from 200 feet away!
  • The LED is now brighter.
  • The new Finder is available in 3 different colors; you can pick your favorite one.Available colors

Conclusion

This new technology, introduced by the Pebblebee Company is giving us the ability to deal with a very common issue of our daily lives. Losing an item, like your keys, remote controller, mobile phone or your pet is something we face on almost daily basis. You can use the devices on literally any surface, item or living being.
