Norinchukin Bank to issue vein reading bank cards


In what has become the bio-security du jour in Japan, Norinchukin follows banking security trailblazers Suruga in 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.
