Karl Martin FOUNDER & CTO NYMI I like to create things. From rigging up spring-loaded pull toys as a toddler, to building circuits and robots in school. Most recently it's been developing biometric and cryptographic systems as part of Nymi. My ultimate goal is to build things that people never thought possible. I have a B.A.Sc. degree in Engineering Science, and M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering, all from the University of Toronto. We make the Nymi Band, the first ever wearable authentication device which uses your cardiac rhythm as a biometric identifier. The Nymi Band communicates your identity in a secure and privacy-protective manner -- say goodbye to passwords, PINs, keys, key cards, payment cards, etc. Visit nymi.com
