Amazon introduces contactless identification system ‘Amazon One'
Amazon launched a service that lets shoppers pay, scan their loyalty card, and enter a building, using their hand palm. The project, called Amazon One, is designed to be highly secure through custom-built hardware and algorithms to create a unique palm signature for everyone. At first, the system will be added to a selection of Amazon Go entry gates, so shoppers can enter the store by identifying with their palm. The shopper’s palm signature is connected to a credit card with a one-minute registration system. Amazon plans to expand the service to more stores, but also wants to offer it to third parties including other retailers.
