Scan your wrist and purchase with PulseWallet

On February 27, 2014, in Gadgets, by Mike Jefferson

Payment methods have changed over the years, and at first we used cash, then came the credit cards and systems such as Google Wallet, and today we have a system that allows you to pay using your wrist.

PulseWallet is a new payment system that doesn’t rely on credit cards, but instead it photographs veins located under the person’s wrist for identification. Due to the unique patterns and complexity of one’s veins, forgery is rather unlikely to happen. As for the technology, this payment system uses built-in palm scanning technology developed by Fujitsu called Palm Secure. Of course, in order to use PulseWallet you have to payment method linked to it, such as your credit card for example. Currently there are no retailers using this new payment technology, but that might change in the future.

PulseWallet system should be available for sale about now, but question remains whether this technology will be accepted and actually replace the current payment system.
