Goodbye wallet, credit card and smartphone, the next method of payment is going to be fingerprints.
As the website Japan News reports, government is about to test a system of payment, developed especially for travellers, which will consent to pay just by using fingerprints, and it will be adopted in particular by touristic places, like hotels and restaurants. The sistem will also consent guests to register at the Hotel and verify their identity.
All the datas collected will be anonymous and will be used to improve touristic strategies for better services.
Only 300 the companies who adhered to the project: hotels, restaurants, souvenir shops and so on.
The aim is to widen the project to the whole country, Tokyo included, before 2020, the deadline of Olympic Games in Japan.
