Nymi

A wearable computing device which is designed to replace the need to remember passwords. The Nymi bracelet is equipped with a sensor that reads the electrocardiogram (ECG) of the person wearing it and uses a person’s own unique heartbeat signature to log on to computers and access other secure devices.

According to Nymi developers, the bracelet relies on three factors of authentication: the bracelet, a paired mobile device, and a verified ECG. The Nymi uses your unique electrocardiogram (ECG) to authenticate your identity through an embedded sensor and then uses Bluetooth to communicate your identity to all of your devices.

Nymi also features motion sensing and proximity detection, so users can simply perform a gesture for access for example, a twist of the wrist can be used as the command to unlock your car door).

Nymi is developed by Bionym Inc., a developer of biometric recognition systems.
