'We've seen user satisfaction with biometrics increase with each Lumidigm Venus deployment,' said Bob Harbour, Chairman and CEO of Lumidigm. 'In the end it's the opinion of the people who use the sensors every day in the real world that matters, and we're honored to have improved their experience with biometrics.'

Venus fingerprint sensors are used in a wide range of applications including workplace security, international border crossings, and asset management. Millions of people around the world have found it easy to use Lumidigm's multispectral biometric technology.

'On behalf of the International Biometric Industry Association, I want to congratulate Lumidigm on this recognition from Popular Science,' said IBIA Chairman and President Walter Hamilton.
