The Biovein system scans your fingertip and verifies your identity via the pattern of veins. It’s what you might call ultra-biometric. It’s very French and based on the Hitachi technology known as VeinID. The idea is that veins are impossible to forge. Hard to argue with that really, eh? Priced at around an arm and a leg or so.
Finger vein authentication uses leading-edge light transmission technology developed by Hitachi to undergo pattern-matching and authentication. Near-infrared light is transmitted through the finger and partially absorbed by hemoglobin in the veins to capture a unique finger vein pattern profile, which is then matched with a pre-registered profile to verify individual identity.
