You can unlock the biometric padlock BenjiLock with your fingerprint

You can use your fingerprint to unlock Benjilock.

Fingerprint sensors are spreading into more products, including the traditional padlock. BenjiLock is a new padlock that you can unlock with your fingerprint.

Los Angeles-based startup BenjiLock, which uses fingerprint recognition technology from partners, is an offline product. Robbie Cabral, CEO and founder of BenjiLock, said there’s no need to connect the lock to the internet. The fingerprint reader can store your print in its memory and recall it for recognition purposes. It’s a good example of how just the right amount of technology can make something more convenient for consumers without adding a ton of cost.

“It opens in less than a second,” said Cabral, during an interview at CES 2017, the big tech trade show in Las Vegas last week. “There’s no Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. We made it for both young people and older people. They don’t need the tech stuff.”

Cabral and his wife, Brach Cabral, have been working on the technology for a while. The lock will come in a variety of colors, like black, copper brass, and stainless steel.

What happens if you lose your finger? Well, you’ll have bigger problems, but you can open the lock with a fingerprint or a traditional key. It will come out in the third quarter of this year for about $80. I’d say that isn’t a bad price, considering how easy it is to lose a key or forget your locker combination. With BenjiLock, the key is literally at your fingertips.

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
