As he explains in the video, the device is a neat little thing that clips onto the back on an iPhone. You can then hold it over a keypad on a card machine and using infra red scanners, it can read the heat signatures of your finger.

As the finger you used first will be slightly cooler by the time you finish typing your pin, it is also possible to gauge the correct order the numbers need to be pressed.
