Lumidigm helps us quickly and conveniently prove who we are. Their novel fingerprint imager uses polarized natural light to look beneath the skin and see a clear, unblemished view of the unique personal signature that is indelibly part of every one of us. It is used in theme parks, airports and border crossings to conveniently let people go about their business without showing a credential to a person. In hospitals across the country, medical professionals are able to quickly obtain drugs from a dispensary without human oversight, and without concern for whether a password or passcard is being misused by another person. One day this convenience will be embedded in our cars and homes, making our lives both more convenient, and more secure.
