+ - In the Future you Will Pay For Your Shopping With Your Face->

Submitted by DavidGilbert99
DavidGilbert99 (2607235) writes "Forget cash, forget cards, forget contactless the future you will only need your face in order to pay for your weekly shopping. That at least is the goal of Finnish start-up Uniqul which has developed military-grade facial recognition software which will identify you, and once you are registered on their system, will debit your account with the amount of your shopping. Alistair Charlton writing for IBTimes UK however believes Uniqul and retailers will have "a lot of convincing to do if it is to succeed in changing the offline payment industry, to one which the customer has even less control over."
