Fukui Computers has developed a line of biometrics-based exercise machines. The company’s ‘medimo’ exercise machines feature finger-vein-authentication technology and are networked to a central computer that remembers every person in its database. Instead of using written charts to record exercises progress, users simply touch the biometric sensor attached to each piece of equipment to access a complete history of their gym work, including what they’ve done and how many calories they’ve burned. The machines also automatically adjust their seats, handlebars and resistance to suit each user.
