We have recently seen the introduction of some innovative biometric systems, such as chip implants that can be used to pay for train fares and the use of heart dimensions as ID. Soon, tourists visiting Japan will have the option of using next-generation fingerprint-based biometrics to ease their travel. Biometric authentication company Liquid, Inc. has begun a full-scale introduction of Touch & Pay, a fingerprint authentication system that will allow tourists to register and buy train tickets, sightseeing tours, check in at hotels, pay for goods and services, and even ship parcels home using fingerprints alone. Tourists will no longer need to worry about lost wallets, remembering pin numbers, or long lines for tickets.
