Finland-based company Uniqul is preparing to release a payment system that uses facial recognition software to link a customer with his or her bank account. Instead of swiping a credit card to purchase goods (which is so painfully last-century), now you can just gaze into a camera.

A Uniqul tablet at check-out stations would take the customer’s photo as they approach. Within seconds the tablet processes biometrical data to locate the individual’s account within the database, which can be registered with any major credit card, Uniqul says.

Oooops.

Verizon panicking already..?



Now lemmesee...

- I'm involved in a 0,25€ transaction and positive ID is required!

- The Minister goes to the Bilderberger conference, to decide
the fate of millions and millions, but not one byte of information
moves.

- Or take a heavy league lobbyist with a 500 billion deal, running
free in Brussels up and down the corridors of power, but nothing
gets officially recorded.

Aaaa-aaaa-aaaa-aaaa-aall-righty, then.
Transparent democracy.
