Last year we reported how Piggly Wiggly was using finger-scanning technology is stores in South Carolina, now Smart Mobs reports that German supermarket chain EDEKA has tested in Ruelzheim some technology that allows its customers to pay by finger too for their shopping by placing their finger on a scanner at the check-out.
