Amazon sees broad audience for its palm recognition tech

This undated photo provided by Amazon shows the Amazon One device at an Amazon Go store in Seattle. Amazon has introduced the new palm recognition technology in a pair of Seattle stores and sees broader uses in places like stadiums and offices. Customers at the stores near Amazon's campus in Washington can flash a palm for entry and to buy goods.

Amazon has introduced new palm recognition technology in a pair of Seattle stores and sees a broader potential audience in stadiums, offices and other gated or secured locations.

Customers at the stores near Amazon’s campus in Washington can flash a palm for entry into secured areas and buy goods.

The company chose palm recognition, according to Dilip Kumar, vice president of Physical Retail & Technology, because it’s more private than other biometric technology, and a person would be required to purposefully flash a palm at the Amazon One device to engage.

“And it’s contactless, which we think customers will appreciate, especially in current times,” Kumar wrote in a blog post Tuesday.

Like the human fingerprint, every palm is unique. Unlike fingerprints, the palm is not used for broader identification purposes because more body specific information is needed. Any palm image proffered for use is never stored on the Amazon One device, the company said, for security reasons.

The data is encrypted in a secured sector of the cloud that was custom built by Amazon, and customers can also delete their Amazon One-related data permanently at any time.

The company expects to roll out Amazon One as an option in other Amazon stores in the coming months, which could mean Whole Foods Market grocery stores. But Amazon believes the technology is applicable in a myriad of secured locations.

In this March 4, 2020 file photo, people walk out of an Amazon Go store, in Seattle. Amazon is rolling out a new device for contactless transactions that will scan an individual’s palm. The Amazon One, which will initially launch in two Amazon Go stores in Seattle, is being viewed as a way for people to use their palm to make everyday activities like paying at a store easier.

So soon you can’t buy or sell anything without showing your palm?
Sounds great (sarc/off)

Looks that way, doesn't it?

From the article:

"One reason was that palm recognition is considered more private than some biometric alternatives because you can’t determine a person’s identity by looking at an image of their palm."

They always incrementally turn up the heat, while the frog boils. The next stage will be biometrics on your hand and forehead that clearly identify who you are, and what you are doing.

"Ultimately, using a palm as a biometric identifier puts customers in control of when and where they use the service."

See? You are in control, not them.

Not impressed... they’re already doing this in Portland, Seattle, Louisville, etc... and all they have to do is break some glass!

Seems like it is heading that way.

[Sounds great (sarc/off)]

Your sarcasm is good. It will only sound great to the New World Order Globalists who will happily follow the Antichrist (whomever he may be) and the false prophet into the lake of fire. (what follows is an example of Globalists worshiping a false prophet Globalist politician).

And the Obama hand sign or whatever @1:02. Look @ all of the Globalist fools in the audience doing the salute, as well.

[The 2014 Global Citizen Festival]

They're all making the hand sign for their hero Manchurian Candidate Barack Hussein Obama when he comes on the screen (via remote) that they're all facing.

Soon to follow...if you don’t have a palm, no problem, you have a forehead don’t you?

Incredible time to be alive!

Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus!
