From Wearable Banking Wristbands to Biometric Store Payments

 - Feb 6, 2015
This collection of innovative apps, cards, POS systems and examples of wearable technology are an indication that contactless payment solutions will only continue to become more prevalent in the future. Moving beyond retail applications, contactless payment systems are being offered in a range of unexpected places, including the guitars of street musicians, photo booths and even the saddles of donkeys giving rides on the beach.

While biometric payments are also rising in popularity, they are converging with contactless payment systems for totally touchless experiences. Rather than requiring physical contact to read a palm or fingerprint, Uniqul and 100% Genuine Imported Foods Chain Stores are using scanners to detect the unique blood vessel networks in human bodies, getting rid of the need for cards and wearable payment systems entirely.
