Amazon testing scanners to identify human hand
According to the New York Post, Amazon is quietly testing scanners that can identify human hand as a way to authenticate store purchase.
The system, codenamed ‘Orville’, will allow customers with Amazon Prime accounts to scan their hands at supported stores and link them to their credit or debit card. The company plans to roll out the system to Whole Foods stores in the US in the coming months.
