    Even the fingerprint readers that check pulse and temp can be foiled by
    the gummi bear attack. Or other variations on silicon tips. Only
    biometric fingerprint readers that can also check oxygenation, a la the
    sensor that hospitals use on patient fingertips, would be less prone to
    this approach.

    Though arguably if you have biometrics, you can at least outrun the other
    guy, if not the bear himself.
