Fingerprint Shopping

I think this is really cool and practical…

Customers of the German supermarket chain EDEKA in the southwest German town of Ruelzheim have been able to pay for their shopping by a fingerprint-pay-system for some time now.
And the company plans to equip more of its stores across the region with this technology.

According to Roland Fitterer, the store manager, customers need to register once with their identity card and bank details, then they can shop straight away. The scanner compares the shopper’s fingerprint with those stored in its database along with account details.

I love cool technology like this that makes life easier and somehow safer for people.
