Ew! The things people do with their palms! That's gonna be one sticky place my hand won't go.

Thonious... I may be wrong, but they said it had to do with de-oxygenated blood. I imagine a severed hand wouldn't have much left.

So now, instead of stealing my wallet a thief is going to steal my hand?

There are already several biometric ID systems out there now -- finger prints, hand geometry, retina scans, etc. -- now there's another. *Yawn...*

@Jhylia

I know the fingerprints and eyes would be different, so I would say yes to the veins being different, but it's a guess.

@darkmagic14n
They don't work if the tissue is no longer connected to a beating heart (dead or severed). My office building has one of these, but I don't have clearance for it.

you know in some countries it is already taken off, just not in usa. Main thing is because of people thinking it is like government controlling everything. It is a sense of freedom and privacy but people are starting to get more into technology nowadays so those techs which were before seen as invasion of privacy is now seens as a cool new way of doing stuff.

If you think about it though Darkmagic, this relies on the blood flowing back toward your heart in your palms.... so a severed hand most likely wouldnt have the blood in it for very long, therefore rendering a severed hand useless

There's a reason thumbprint and biometric security hasn't taken off, nobody wants to lose a limb/appendage when they're mugged
