The company actually addresses the issue of the security involving a severed hand. The company states in its frequently asked questions: "Firstly we hope that this will never happen. However, even if someone, somehow, got away with sneaking a chopped off hand into any store, they wouldn’t be able to use it at check-out due to a lack of blood flow in the severed hand. "

Hook a little pump into a couple of the veins and "Voila", blood flow....

The hospital system at which I used to be employed implemented a similar system for registration. They billed it as a way to prevent fraud and misuse of SSN information. Apparently the illegals get one stolen SSN and use it for everyone in their family.

When we were implementing the product (I’m an IT engineer), I had a chance to talk with one of the implementation engineers from the company, and he was a bit of a tin-foil hat person. He assured me that no amount of internal security could keep the data stored in those systems secure from government snooping. That was all he said.

To this day, if I patronize one of their facilities, I refuse to put my hand on the scanner. They say the vein configuration in your palm is as unique as your fingerprint or your iris. No thanks!

Actually that would be the Google Chrome icon with its three 6s forming a sort of camera-like iris.

My thoughts exactly. Let me guess. The best places to get a clear vein scan are the hand or the forehead.

Which one of these 2 co-founders, Matt Saricicek or Aimann Rasheed, makes you nervous?
