Fingerprint Key

Winner - Bronze

Competition: Spark:Concept
Designer: Design Team DESIGNSORI Academy
Design Type: Key

Team Members : Taehoon Jung / Inje University, Jihee Ryu / Keimyung University There are numerous people living on earth, and most of them own their own cars. Even though there are so many people having their own cars, there is only limited ways of unlocking the door, using keys or smart keys. These methods are vulnerable in security. Thus, there should be various methods to be suggested in locking up the car, so that it would satisfy the needs of various kinds of people. To this end, I have come up with an idea of finger print car-key, the key that is only to myself. It is a fingerprint verification key. To be specific, it is a portable fingerprint verifier. To open a door, the body structure of the key and the car owner’s fingerprints are needed. Without those, the door will not open to anyone. In terms of the design, the keyhole looks similar to that of ordinary keys. Because of the design, thieves may try to open the door as they would do with ordinary keyholes, only to fail. The item itself is not deceptive.
