ثنائي خيار شرعي A new biometric scanner in Snell Library installed this semester lets students swipe their hands instead of their Husky cards. Some students appreciate the efficient process of entering Snell, while others are concerned about Northeastern keeping images of their fingerprints.

Students who register their fingerprints at Husky Card Services can swipe their hand through the scanner and walk in to Snell. الخيارات الثنائية كسب المال “It’s pretty efficient. Instead of looking for your Husky card you can just use the swipe of a hand,” second-year computer science major Ernie Hao said while walking by the bioscanner in Snell.

ابدا التداول الفوركس Husky Card Services approached Snell Library in August and offered to install the scanner, which was developed by Idemia, by the first day of classes. Husky Card Services is paying for the machine and responsible for its maintenance.

Students can register their fingerprints with Husky Card Services in Speare Commons, where a representative will instruct them to wave their fingers through a scanner four times. The scanner saves digital photos of the fingerprints so the bioscanner in Snell will recognize those fingerprints. Warren Lord, the director of Husky Card Services, declined to comment. Other staff members did not respond to requests for comment.
