Imagine being able to run every day errands or travel with empty pockets. A new IT security product that uses biometric technology makes that possible.
The executives of the Hanscan Group chose to launch the new invention in Rapid City. The creators developed the product in an effort to stamp out cyber crime. The technology works by reading a person's red blood cell structure. There is no secondary type of identification so only the live person is able to access their data.
"You could go to immigration, you could board a plane, check in pay - you don't need any money or credit cards everything you could do with the system," the product's inventor Klaas Zwart said.
The Dutch technology company says Rapid City has a great business community and was a good place to introduce their product, particularly their biometric payment system dubbed 'Nexus Smartpay.'
