A purse that requires you to scan your thumb print in order to open it up and has a GPS locator inside. When purse is forced open a call to the police will be made giving away the location of the purse.

       This is a pretty good idea. The material of the purse could be woven with a fine conductive mesh charged with a microcurrent, and a small ohm-reader would detect the change in resistance if the purse was slashed open. It would take so little charge that the batteries would last for years.

       " ... purse is forced open a small explosive charge detonates giving away the location of the purse ... "   

       Well, maybe not THAT small ...

       A kilo or so of torpex ought to do it.

       Egads, an upgrade to the Nasal ATM, a fingerprint reader inside on of the false nostrils, simply insert digit and move around to get the scanner to read the print.   

       Just out of interest, some people (including me) get heat dermatitis and our fingers smooth out above 28 degrees or so..

       I second the idea of having an explosive charge in the purse that goes off when the thief opens it, but don't like the "small" part.   

       How about a bear trap purse?

       Fine, as long as you don't intend to lend out any of the money you keep in there - there are laws against Ursury ...

       If it was adult female sheep sheepskin, I'm presuming the ewesury law would apply as well?
