The Ogaki Kyoritsu Bank in Japan is in the process of rolling out a palm scanning ATM that eliminates the need for cards.
Clients will be authenticated using only their palm print, four-digit PIN number and birthday rather than the traditional plastic bankcard.
The new cash machines will have biometric sensors installed in them, which will identify a person based on comparing their palm to the information stored on file. This is a bonus for anyone worried about losing their card.
The technology was developed in response to the 2011 Tohoku earthquake, as a large quantity of people lost all of their personal identification and were unable to access their bank accounts. This is a great way to move into the future.
