"When you think about it, there's no reason that biometric recognition can't provide security on tablets -- well, aside from the need for a sensor thin enough to fit on a slate. Fujitsu has been on the job, making significant progress since showing off its clunky palm vein reader. The company's latest development on the biometric front is an authentication sensor that measures a minuscule 5mm thick, which is slight enough for use in tablets. Fujitsu employed its PalmSecure technology for reading users' palm vein patterns without requiring physical contact with the sensor. This super-thin module is still in the thick of research and development, but it's likely destined for your tablet someday down the line."

"HPC Wales [...] is a UK- and EU-backed initiative partnering Welsh universities and Fujitsu’s technology capabilities to provide a distributed HPC” (HPC = high-performance computing) “service to research institutions and businesses across what is an increasingly technology-driven economy. “Most organizations wouldn’t be able to afford the infrastructure for high-performance computing,” says HPC Wales’s CEO, David Craddock. “So we are investing to create a customer-oriented service that can provide affordable access to this technology for both businesses and academia.”

“From improving cancer treatment and optimizing offshore wind farms to rendering computer-generated imagery (CGI) for movies, HPC Wales is set to put high-performance computing to work on a variety of academic, scientific and commercial projects for which such technology would previously have been out of reach. The £40 million ($62m) project will eventually include 1,400 nodes across eight linked sites, with an aggregated performance of more than 190 teraflops. The system will mainly be powered by Fujitsu PRIMERGY cluster servers.”
 
We've had a lot of feedback (mainly from gamers ;-)) that they would like to have a go on the world's fastest computer. HPC Wales is offering affordable access through distributed computing to Fujitsu's supercomputers to researchers and businesses... so if you live in Wales...

A more hygienic and secure replacement for fingerprint scanning by Fujitsu:

"The palm vein device by Fujitsu is an authentication system that utilizes the latest in biometric security technology. Answering a worldwide need from governments to the private sector, this contactless device offers an easy-touse, hygienic solution for verifying identity. The new palm vein device by Fujitsu works by capturing a person's vein pattern image while radiating it with near-infrared rays. The deoxidized hemoglobin in the palm vein absorbs these rays, thereby reducing the reflection rate and causing the veins to appear as a black pattern. This vein pattern is then verified against a pre-registered pattern to authenticate the individual."

Fujitsu Microelectronics, Asia announces a new simulation technology for systems using the ARM computing core, widely used in mobile phones and various electronic devices.

The extremely fast simulation technology can faithfully reproduce hardware operations with cycle-for-cycle real-time accuracy, allowing the development cycle for systems and devices using ARM cores to be shortened while encouraging the development of a greater diversity of ARM-based systems.
It is now possible that a standard PC can simulate an ARM multi-core system with cycle-level reliability at speeds better than 100 MHz.

"Even more intriguingly, the custom build of Android that Fujitsu is working on includes the ability to launch "hidden apps" that don't appear in the app tray by making a secret gesture in what appears to be an otherwise-innocuous menu, and a smart alarm function that monitors your breathing at night, gently bringing you out of deep sleep into a lighter one before your alarm starts to go off."
