Fingerprinting: The Way of the Future

The Wall Street Journal's Market Watch released a short list piece on 6 places you'll soon have to fingerprint. The list is as follows:

Starting and Customizing Your Car - Push-button ignition will no longer be the new "luxury" feature of your new ride. Soon, security measures will require your own personal identification.

Firing a Gun - A controversial matter, fingerprint recognition on guns will ensure your gun will only fire after you've unlocked it via fingerprint.

Using your home entertainment system - Ever wonder what it would be like if all your favorite channels and presets were stored away, ready to be accessed via a remote control fingerprint scan.

Entering your home, office or hotel room - Fingerprint scanners are popping up in 24 Hour Fitness gyms. It's only a matter of time before you can get one installed in your man cave.

Withdrawing money from the ATM - Even I feel uneasy just producing my bank card from my wallet in front of strangers. A fingerprint scan would put my mind a little more at ease.

Getting into your local bar - Not only will this help with keeping underage customers out of local hot spots, but it could be a cool feature in a dystopian future-themed nerd bar. Don't you think?

What do you think about this list, and how do you think today's tech industry will achieve these things? Fingerprint Depot wants to know.
