Man, this is just another way the man is trying to brand us like cattle.

Im not in the security field per se, but I'd say passwords are more secure than any other single-authentication tool. Unless you write them down they essentially don't exist so they can't be stolen - unless you give in after a few swings of a bat
And unless it's short and simple it can be impossible
to guess and hard to brute force. However, I'd say there's not much time left for cracking to catch up to the ideal passwords "strength". Or to the maximum a person is capable of remembering.
This device would be great if used in conjunction with a password where needed or just alone as identification. The downside is it probably won't be designed with privacy in mind. Ohr well, what could go wrong.
