New York, Jaury 5: US–based start–up Digipas has launched a “smart” lock that allows users to open or lock their luggage with just a swipe of their smartphone screens. Called eGeeTouch, the new lock could be a boon for travellers who have a tendency to misplace the keys to their suitcase locks or forget the passwords of conventiol combition locks. With the new electronic lock, a tap of their NFC (Near Field Communications)–ebled smartphone, tablet or smartwatch could grant access to their luggage. NFC ebles transfer of small amounts of data between two devices held a few centimetres from each other, but unlike Bluetooth, it requires no pairing code. “The world’s first smart electronic lock is embedded with state–of–art intelligent access security and identification technologies, and resolve the disadvantages associated with using conventiol mechanical locks,” the company wrote on its website.
