Everyone pitches in.

One of the primary reasons I chose to join Dan and Kris in the utterly insane venture of starting a new studio was to work with a team like this.

The thumbprint scanner is a bit cheaper than a fob- or card-based security system. Employers generally have to replace lost or stolen RFID fobs and keycards. The same policy does not extend to thumbs.
