SmartMetric debuts a credit card that has a real-time instant user biometric fingerprint recognition inside.

The credit card's surface mounted chip is only able to work following an exact match of the card user's fingerprint that has been prestored inside of the credit card. This means the card's transaction chip is unable to function and complete a transaction if there is no biometric fingerprint match with the card user.

SmartMetric says this is more secure than a PIN number that is used today on credit and debit cards. Using biometric technology built into the card is a giant leap forward in credit and debit card security.

The biometric technology developed by SmartMetric has taken over a decade of R&D. This advanced biometric technology has been engineered and developed in-house by SmartMetric.

The SmartMetric card is designed with its own internal power source. This enables the card to function and perform the fingerprint scan prior to the card being inserted into a reader. Allowing the card to be used at regular ATMs and in situations where the card is used in places like a restaurant where the card is taken away from the dining table to be processed.

SmartMetric is a USA based company with sales and marketing partnerships in Latin America, Europe and United States. Engineering of the biometric card electronics is done in-house and is the owned intellectual property of the company.

SmartMetric has issued patents and patents pending surrounding its biometric card technology.
