Amazon Go has always had a progressive mindset when it comes to creating a seamless shopping experience for its consumers and one of the most notable components is the vein scanners in the physical stores. In the convenience stores, the company is using accounts to link consumer imprints of their personal hand veins -- Amazon has also recently filed for a patent protecting its vein scanning technology.
The biometric approach captures two visuals of one's hands -- the first capture would understand the specifically unique wrinkle patterns of the palm and the second would dive deeper using an infrared light to record elements including veins in the hands. Within the store, artificial intelligence and camera scanners would identify an charge consumers to their accounts.
