Apple’s Touch Bar on its newer MacBook Pro models is just about useless, but there’s something right next to it that’s awesome. It’s a tiny little fingerprint scanner that you might not have even known is there, and it lets you unlock your laptop with a quick touch. Jealous? Don’t be. If you have a Windows 10 laptop or desktop, you can add the same feature to your computer for just $22. Check out the Idem FCC BioScan Compact USB Fingerprint Scanner on Amazon, which is a tiny little USB dongle with a built-in fingerprint sensor. Plug it in and you can unlock your computer without having to type out that annoying password!
