The new smartwatches Samsung they will be able to do anything, even read ours biometric data with extreme precision and our veins? Apparently, yes. And then after fingerprints, facial features, voice and iris, in the future wearable electronic devices such as smartwatches, smart watches, could recognize the owner by his veins.
The idea is part of a Samsung patent issued by the US patent and trademark office. The project shows the design of a smartwatch capable of authenticating the user by looking at the "map" from the vene which are located on the back of the hand. The same thing already happens with the fingers, the face or the eye: the watch acquires the image of its user's veins using infrared, and recognizes it through the recorded data.
The system can also function as an anti-theft device and can yield faster all actions that require the entry of an alphanumeric code for user authentication, see turning on the device and unlocking, purchasing an app and so on.
However, this is not an absolute novelty: Fujitsu, for example, has already made notebooks with PalmSecure biometric scanner that identifies the user simply by reading the palm of the hand. A infrared sensor recognizes veins and allows access to the operating system. The system could be used in the future, even by Samsung, for automatic mobile payments.
