We have called out Amazon in the past censorship of Christian books on homosexuality and their reluctance to ban pedophilia-promoting products. Now, they’re looking to make the jump from 1984 to the Book of Revelation with a payment system that will use a microchip embedded in shoppers’ hands.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Amazon is making moves toward allowing users to connect their credit card information to their hands, allowing them to scan for purchases with their palms at checkout areas in the retailer’s growing number of physical stores.
While the plan is still in its early stages, the tech giant has reportedly begun working with Visa to test the new terminals and has discussed the project with Mastercard, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and Synchrony Financial.
The Wall Street Journal also notes that the company had previously filed a patent for a “non-contact biometric identification system” that features a “hand scanner” to produce a picture of a person’s palm.
Unsurprisingly, the only concern coming from the mainstream media is how Amazon will handle potential fraud and the amount of personal information they will receive from the scans.
Data collected from the terminals would be stored on Amazon’s cloud and used to study consumers’ spending habits at the massive retailer’s stores and website, according to The Journal, which is already creepy and invasive enough.
At best, Amazon is looking to transform “the way people shop in brick-and-mortar stores, and how it could work with credit card companies to further integrate itself into people’s financial lives,” CNBC reports.
At worst, this technology will pave the way for users who fail to submit to the totalitarian leftist authorities to have their buying power decimated with the click of a mouse.
Don’t fall for it, saints.
