Fingerprint software is commonly associated with spy thrillers and futuristic identification systems. At their most mundane, they may remind you of authorization control systems at your workplace. While biometric readers are arguably the best security solutions in the market today, they may soon be used to create the perfect cup of Joe, too! If this surprises you, read further.
Recently, an electronic giant created a coffee maker featuring an automated fingerprint identification system. The device creates a profile based on an individual client’s coffee preference. Next, it uses fingerprint software to scan their fingerprint. The biometric and coffee preference data is stored on their profile.
The next time the client wants coffee, all they need to do is place their finger on the scanner and let the automated fingerprint identification system match it with its database. In a moment, their preference would be taken into account and a steaming, hot cup of coffee would literally be at their fingertips.
The most obvious benefit of this system is that it helps you skip the long-drawn process of selecting quantity and ingredients for your coffee. Plus, you may even program the machine to brew the perfect coffee at specific time intervals;a ‘caffeine alarm clock’, so to say. In this respect, it doubles up as your secretary!
As we see, biometric readers are rapidly going beyond their basic scope of security management to enter various arenas of everyday life.An increasing number of organizations are adopting this technology to enhance productivity and automate processes within the workplace.
