Wristwatch proximity PC lock announced

Ensure Technologies makes small devices that transmit encrypted wireless signals to a PC, without which the computer will turn off its monitor, keyboard, and mouse. The company has just signed an agreement with a watchmaking company that will build that proximity signal device into a wristwatch.

The company is developing additional uses for the system including security for PDAs and mobile phones.
