A new payment system with just your hand Amazon

A new payment system has been announced by the international giant Amazon, allowing payments in physical shops, with just your hand.

Titled the Amazon One it collects data about the user’s palm, skin patterns, fingerprints, and definition.

This is then scanned by the machine and once the hand has hovered over it for a moment or two, the payment is made.

There are two Amazon stores in Seattle where the hardware will be tested.

Amazon has already announced that it is “in active discussions with several potential customers” regarding a roll-out of the solution to other stores.

“In most retail environments, Amazon One could become an alternate payment or loyalty card option with a device at the checkout counter next to a traditional point of sale system,”

Amazon also went on to explain the system could be used for location entry, like a high tech ID card.

“We believe Amazon One has broad applicability beyond our retail stores,” it added.
