Amazon's Palm-Scanning Tech Also Knows How Old You Are

The company said that the age verification feature was designed to solve the “customer pain point” of using your hand to pay for alcohol only to have to pull out your wallet anyway to flash your ID.

Suuuuuuure :laughing:

In order to access the age verification feature when it rolls out to a location near you, you’ll need to upload photos of the front and back of a government issued ID to the Amazon One webpage as well as a selfie to verify that it’s your ID.



How long will it take for this to be integrated into pubs, Bottle shops, cinemas, media stores, and so on. I can see companies and governments endorsing this kind of tech to “protect the children”.
