Looks cool to the gadget geek in me, but Mr. Practical Finger-Wagger says, "Silly gadget geek! How in the world will this ever be useful for the home user?" But the fact that this is apparently in use in some banks in the UK shows that this is not designed solely as a consumer device.

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
