School Kids Pay For Lunch Using Their Palms [Video]
Infrared scanners implemented in the cafeteria hopes to streamline the payments.
Moss Bluff Elementary School in Louisiana, USA, will introduce palm scanners to streamline payments at the cafeteria. The school, with nearly 1,000 students, hopes to increase efficiency and reduce payment mistakes compared to human staff. The technology is able to read the unique vein patterns of each hand using infrared light and connect the person to his/her meal plans.
Not everyone is pleased with the palm reader being implemented, where one Christian parent told local TV channel KPLC-TV that, “I know where it's going to end up coming to, the mark of the beast,” and adds that she will be transferring her kids to another school.
