Dutch online and mobile transactions specialist Adyen has unveiled a revolutionary application that lets people make payments using only their faces.
Tapping smartphone and tablet cameras, the Face-ID app requires customers to show their faces and then uses recognition technology to make a match. To confirm they have been correctly identified, the customers just give a thumbs up sign.
Pieter van der Does, CEO, Adyen, boasts: "This has revolutionised existing payment ecosystems and sent initiatives like NFC, QR codes, e-wallets, EMV-Chip and contactless payments back to the stone age."
You can test the technology here, although the app doesn't launch until Sunday. (Hang on...Sunday you say? Ed.)
