    JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!

    How are you meant to electrocute people who are trying to gain access to your computer with this?

    Would you see Dr Evil with such a blatantly average device such as this?

    Seriously dude, it's got to have at least one "laser beam" hooked up to it.

    Cool, now combine the 2 so you have to put your finger through the chopper to get to a fingerprint scanner and voila!

    A tool Blofield would happily have installed in his underground island lair!

    This is OT but few months ago a friend of mine had it index finger chopped when the car hijacker realized that his Mercs could only be activated by his finger print. Needless to say, they got his car at the expense of his finger. Gross! :mad:

    Is this a potential flaw of biometric?

    What kind of a Mercedes is that? Is that a European-only option? Or after-market? (I'm very sorry about your friend's finger)
