myIDkey: voice, Bluetooth, USB gadget to store passwords & more

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, March 14, 2013

A gadget to safely store all of those passwords.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Who doesn’t have trouble remembering all of those passwords, codes and account numbers.    Help is on the way.   A company called Arkami has been running a successful campaign on Kickstarter to produce a biometric, speech enabled, Bluetooth flash drive.   It’s called myIDkey.    CEO Tareq Risheq….

“When you’re on the go and you want to set your alarm and you forget your password, you can just say on the device itself, home alarm, or gym code or if you’re at a bank standing online and they ask you for your social security number or any private number, you can just simply speak it and it will display it right then and there on the device.  Of course it’s secure with biometrics so you have to activate it with your fingerprint first.”

There’s more info at myIDkey.com.  It’s due to arrive this fall.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
