Think an eticket is cutting edge? How about using a biometric implant? Recently, companies have been experimenting with novel ways to pay, such as a credit card that uses biometric fingerprinting and cashless payment methods. Now, state-owned Swedish rail operator SJ is the first travel company in the world to allow passengers to use a biometric chip implanted in their hand instead of a paper or eticket. At the moment, the scheme is only available to people who already have the biometric implant.
