Japan tests new fingerprint payment system
Fingerprints could soon replace credit cards and cash in Japan.
The system will assess how much money a customer has, all apparently based on a fingerprint.
Japan hopes to have it operating in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Under the system, all people will have to do is place two fingers on a special machine, designed to recognise the owner and all their relevant personal details.
It’s a system that could also replace the need to show your passport when checking into hotels.
Aeon Bank plans to test the technology, allowing customers to visit ATMs and use nothing more than their fingers to identify themselves.
Won’t be long before people are getting their hands chopped off then.
