It may sound like something straight out of a James Bond movie, but believe it or not, Australia’s major banks are moving to embrace biometric security systems
By using biometric security there would not be a need for customers to have the plastic card nor to remember a PIN.
Customers would press a thumb against a scanner or have their eye scanned and then be able to complete the transaction.

What would be the purpose of a chip if all the same information could be read through biometrics? The only thing is data storage, which in the case of medical information it's useful.
Perhaps you have a point if money was changed through chips but needed to verify the user first through biometrics?
What if the thief/mugger starts to take a finger or two from his/her victims, also eyeballs. You see it happen in the movies/TV all the time .
