I just read a very interesting article that’s about “Pay by Touch”, which means you can buy things from stores by using your fingerprint instead of using cash or a credit card. The fingerprint is scanned into a computer that’s connected to a central database, where it looks up the identity of the fingerprint and then deducts the amount of the transaction from the person’s account.
The article says that “Pay by Touch” is already becoming widespread in the U.S. There are now 2100 stores in the U.S. that let constomers pay by fingerprint!
Here’s the link:
