If you've got a lot of money to throw around, what better way to show it than by spending US$825 on the thing that you carry said money around in? That's the going rate for the Biometric Wallet from Dunhill London. Its tamperproof locking carbon fiber outer shell, leather interior and stainless steel money clip are all nice touches, but what really makes it special - and biometric - is the fact that it will only open with a touch of its owner's fingerprint.
Another of the wallet's ooh la-la features is its Bluetooth alarm system. Once activated, it will sound an alarm if the wallet and the owner's mobile phone are separated by more than five meters (16 feet). The system should also keep the phone from being stolen - it's two alarms for the price of one!
Should you not want to shell out $825, the same wallet is also available as the iWallet, for a less staggering $600. You can save money further by going for the $399 fiberglass version, or really cheap out with the $299 polycarbonate model. While the carbon fiber version of either the Biometric Wallet or iWallet comes only in black, the lower models come in a variety of colors.
Inside the case is an RFID transmitter, which links to your phone via Bluetooth. An alarm sounds if the range exceeds five yards. Four mechanical mortise locks last five days before needing a charge via USB. If you find yourself 'locked out' of your own wallet, connect to a PC to enter your password. The biometric scanner uses a sensor the width of a human hair to measure conductivity in the ridges and valleys of your fingerprint as you swipe it across
