Securing the Future: 3 high-tech locksTechList The List
Keeping us safe and secure are some high-tech new locks that promise to protect our homes, wheels and computers. Jared Cotter found three that will help keep your life protected from theft.
With just a touch of your home button, the touch ID sensor quickly reads your finger print and unlocks your phone – making your finger the key. You just stick the scanner in a USB slot and after a few setup steps, you're done. Now unlocking your computer is just a highly personalized tap or swipe away. Pick one up for around $40.
This lock is made of a textile that promises to be superhero tough — it shrugs off a nasty bite from a bolt cutter and it can even withstand fire for a while. Because it's textile, it should prevent scratches on your bike. It was successful on Kickstarter and backers paid about $96 for one.
This is a smart lock that bolts to the floor behind your door. It opens and closes with an app or by stepping on it and it's designed to be way stronger than your dead bolt. The only catch, it only works on doors that open into your home. Pick one up for around $200.
