Tt eSports Integrates Synaptics IronVeil Fingerprint Sensor into the Black V2 Mouse

Thermaltake's gaming hardware brand Tt eSports is the first to integrate Synaptics IronVeil fingerprint sensor into the mouse, with its new Tt eSports Black V2 gaming mouse. Placed slightly above where your right thumb would grip the mouse, this 4 mm x 10 mm rectangular sensor scans your thumbprint with an accuracy of 1/50,000 false-pass and 3/100 false-fail; letting you use the IronVeil software to authenticate a variety of things.

IronVeil technology is FIDO compliant, and is natively supported by Windows 10 and Windows Hello, letting you log-in or wake/unlock your machine using your thumb. It's also supported by various e-commerce websites, MMO games (login and quick in-game micro-transactions), game DRM services (such as Steam and Origin), and multi-step authentication by popular social-media websites. The rest of the mouse's feature-set is identical to the Black V2 that's already in the market for $49.99. The IronVeil-integrated variant of this mouse will launch soon, at $59.99.

Forward thinking, but I'm not sure what to make of this thing. What happens if your mouse dies or your thumb gets cut off? :rolleyes:

You use more conventional authentication measures until a new mouse arrives.

If you lose your thumb, you'd start using another finger for authentication. Would probably get a keyboard with reader or standalone reader to make it less cumbersome.

Surprisingly quite cheap considering the feature. I thought they'd charge more than US$100 for this.

Lol. And much more likely for the mouse to fail then get a hangnail.
