Cybersecurity firm Kaspersky, Swedish designer Benjamin Waye, and creative agency Archetype have teamed to develop a ring that could tackle the issue of what to do if your biometric data is stolen. The attractive and wearable piece of jewelry features a synthetic fingerprint that can be used to unlock phones, make payments, or even access a home or office. Unlike the actual fingerprint of a living human, which can never be replaced if lost, the artificial biometric identifier can be erased and substituted with a new version in the event of an identity theft.
