Amazon Files Tech Patent That Can Identify People Through the Veins in Their Hands

The Infinite Brief
Amazon filed a patent for technology that could identify you by scanning the wrinkles in the palm of your hand and by using a light to see beneath your skin to your blood vessels.

The resulting images could be used to identify you as a shopper at Amazon Go stores.

Internal hand scanning is supposed to be more much reliable than a credit card swipe in the battle against identity theft.
