The Fujitsu company has announced that it will use a palm-vein identification/authentication technology in Naka city, Ibaraki prefecture, Japan.

Fujitsu announced yesterday that it will use its biometric palm vein authentication technology in a public library in Naka city (Ibaraki prefecture, Japan). Fujitsu's contactless palm vein authentication will eliminate the use of library cards.

Naka city was established on January 21, 2005 with the founding principle of creating harmony among nature, the culture of the region, its people and cutting-edge science.

Features of Fujitsu's contactless palm vein authentication technology which were recognized and highly regarded by Naka city include

-High level of authentication accuracy due to the complexity of vein patterns of the palm.

-Difficulty in duplicating palm vein patterns given that the biometric information is internal to the body.

-The system is contactless and therefore hygienic for use in public areas.

I found this to be a very cool and interesting technology.

I can see this catching on in many places, of course Japan firstly, but maybe here in the U.S. as well.

There is alot of cool technology coming out of Japan these days, and really the last 10 years really.

Thoughts, opinions, Romans.

Nifty. Seems a waste to use it in a library though. Still, I can see this being used all over the planet pretty quickly, especially in the military.

Good stuff.
