In what has become the bio-security du jour
in Japan, Norinchukin
follows banking security trailblazers Suruga
announcing new biometric bank cards that identify patrons by the pattern of veins in the palm of their hands. The cards
will be issued starting this October and will include embedded, integrated circuits to assist in processing bank
transactions and presumably to alert the local samuraibot
on duty after your veins have been
harvested to access your account.
