Selfie Pay

Within the framework of the traditional week of achievements in modern technology, new payment systems based on biometric characteristics were shown in London.

One of them is Selfie Pay. To conduct the next transaction, a special application will require the user to do selfi, then ask to blink his eyes to finally make sure of the identity of the person making the banking transaction.

The idea of ​​a new payment system is to completely rid us of passwords, which will be replaced by biometric data . With the help of Selfie Pay it will be possible to make purchases, pay for trips in the city transport, buy tickets for the train and plane and “enter” into your computer.

For this purpose, a wearable Nymi bracelet is also designed that identifies you according to the heart rhythm based on the electrocardiogram, which is also absolutely individual for everyone. Curiously, the cardiogram will not depend on the heart rate, so the bracelet will not let you down even after running.

In the continuation of the topic is worth mentioning the world’s first contactless payment ring Kerv, made of ceramics and special resin. As the developers of the ring say, putting it on your finger you put on a wireless payment card.

By the way, the creators of new payment systems emphasize that you should not limit yourself to any one method of identification. New items will be available soon: the Kerv ring will go on sale in July, and Selfie Pay will be available by the end of the year. The Nymi bracelet is still under development.
