Three more Amazon Go stores in Seattle are being equipped with Amazon One palm-reading biometric identification scanners, Geekwire reported on Monday (Feb. 1).
The eCommerce giant already added the palm scanning equipment to one Seattle store, and is planning to add it two more locations soon, bringing the total to eight. Amazon first launched the technology in September as an alternative to using a QR code or app to enter its automated Go stores.
The technology enables customers to use their palm as an identification and payment method by waving their hand over the scanner when entering Amazon Go stores. Amazon anticipates that its palm-reading biometrics tech will expand across more industries as an identification and payments tool.Pymnts
