    fingerprint reader for Win 8.1

    I am interested in one for a) Windows logon, and b) RoboForm use.

    there used to be some available called Eikon UPEK, but Apple bought that company & now it seems there's only OEM vendors who sell the technology to notebook vendors.

    Is anyone still making this stuff or is it and Windows Biometric Framework pretty much dead at this point?
