Have you ever lost a credit or debit card? The entire process immediately following losing that vital piece of plastic is brutal. Perhaps you’ve never lost a credit or debit card, but you’re paranoid of identity theft or some unwanted foe getting their hands or eyes on your payment info. Either way, Swedish company Quixter may have found a solution for you.
It sounds as creepy as it is brilliant, but Quixter’s new “vein-scanning” is designed to make transactions quicker and easier by scanning the unique vein patterns in each person’s palm. It’s quite simple, type in the last four digits of your phone number than get a scan – five seconds and you’re done. Sounds good.
