San Diego-based iWallet has inked a deal with NEXT Biometrics to incorporate NEXT Biometrics’ next generation, high-quality fingerprint imaging sensor modules into iWallet’s portfolio of products, which feature its patented BIO-BLU Biometric Bluetooth® smart locking technology.
NEXT’s fingerprint sensors will be incorporated into iWallet’s biometric products, designed to protect credit cards, jewelry, prescription medications and other valuables, which are available through its retail division and strategic licensing agreements.
