Amazon is expanding its new Amazon One palm-reading biometric identification system to three additional Amazon Go stores in Seattle.
The company debuted the technology in September. It works by scanning the palms of participating customers, giving them an alternative to the regular process of checking into the automated retail stores, which normally involves using a QR code in an app.
Amazon One is now available at the Amazon Go store at 1122 Madison St. and will launch at the 920 5th Ave. and 1906 Terry Ave. locations in the coming weeks. There will be eight Amazon physical retail stores in the Seattle area with Amazon One, including Amazon Books and 4-star locations.Geek Wire
