Whole Foods to roll out biometric palm scanning payment technology across its U.S. stores
The first “Amazon Fresh” grocery store equipped with “Just Walk Out” technology has opened, allowing customers to purchase groceries without having to wait in a long checkout line.
The catch is that all customers will be surveilled and tracked using an advanced system of cameras and artificial intelligence (AI). And the eventual goal is to also get them microchipped so they can pay using their wrist rather than having to carry around a chip-equipped credit or debit card.
Once a customer walks inside the store, he or she “can scan the QR code in their Amazon app, use Amazon One to scan their palm, or insert a credit or debit card linked to their Amazon account,” the company further revealed, explaining that waving one’s hand to pay is already an option.
After leaving the store, funds are taken from the card or hand and put into Amazon’s account, eliminating the need for human checkers. It is full dystopia manifesting before our very eyes.
Amazon has been talking about this new system for quite some time now, indicating that Whole Foods Market stores, which it now owns, will also be getting it in the coming weeks and months.
Amazon wants to make it easy for customers to avoid having to carry around cash or cards, and instead be able to pay for food with their bodies. This is exactly what was foretold in the biblical book of Revelation, by the way.
