Touchless Fingerprint Reader: MorphoTower

By Brian Rhodes, Published May 10, 2016, 08:58am EDT

Biometric giant Morpho is most known for their contact fingerprint readers, but the one getting the most attention is the contactless MorphoWave Tower.

Inside, we examine Morpho's most unconventional reader and examine function, price, and where it fits in the market.
