Vending Machine Sells Weed & Booze
According to CNet, American Green Machine is trying to create a smart vending machine that can get around the need for human scrutiny. It works by using a biometric sensor that can identify unique veins within the finger to verify that a person has an account set up with the company. Vein recognition uses infrared lights to view patterns underneath a person’s palm, which are different even among identical twins. The security measure is meant to make sure that someone who isn’t old enough to drink can’t steal someone else’s account and buy alcohol illegally. A smart vending machine would also be able to track how much you’re buying and cut you off based on the venue’s preferences.
