BIO-key is going to participate in next week’s Design Tokyo expo, and will take the opportunity to show off two new product offerings.
The event is aimed at showcasing “marketable” products, representing an opportunity for BIO-key to get its biometric consumer offerings in front of potential clients and partners. So the company is planning to show off its full line of consumer-facing offerings at the event, including new additions to its line of biometric padlocks and bike locks, with BIO-key Hong Kong Managing Director Wong Kwok Fong commenting in a statement that Design Tokyo “will provide global visibility for our dynamic range of consumer products.”
One of those new additions is the TouchLock TSA Pro, a luggage padlock that features both a fingerprint reader and Bluetooth support. The solution was named an “Editor’s Pick” by Design Tokyo’s administrative committee, suggesting it will have a strong showing.
The new TouchLock Bike Pro, meanwhile, also features a fingerprint reader and Bluetooth functionality, and could prove to be particularly appealing at Design Tokyo given that Asahi Cycle Co. recently became a distribution partner for BIO-key’s bike lock offerings.
The APAC market and hardware solutions like the TouchLock offerings were highlighted as two of the ‘three pillars’ of BIO-key’s business strategy for this year, so the company’s plans for Design Tokyo suggest that the company sees this event as a major opportunity.
Design Tokyo will run from July 4th to 6th.
