Anti-Theft Purses

While anyone who would steal a purse would think nothing of ripping it open to get at your valuables, you could potentially stop pick-pockets with this Anti-theft handbag. It uses a fingerprint scanner to protect your bag from unauthorized access.
It's just a prototype now, designed by art student Louise Wilson, but I'm betting we'll see this thing on the market within a year's time. The Sony Micro Vault with Fingerprint Access USB storage device is very small and relatively inexpensive ($120 for 128mb) so the technology is already commercially viable. I also hope Louise will consider licensing her idea to Coach.
