A UK supermarket has become the first in the world to let shoppers pay for groceries using just the veins in their fingertips.
Customers at the Costcutter store, at Brunel University in London, can now pay using their unique vein pattern to identify themselves.
The firm behind the technology, Sthaler, has said it is in “serious talks” with other major UK supermarkets to adopt hi-tech finger vein scanners at pay points across thousands of stores.
It works by using infrared to scan people’s finger veins and then links this unique biometric map to their bank cards. Customers’ bank details are then stored with payment provider Worldpay, in the same way you can store your card details when shopping online. Shoppers can then turn up to the supermarket with nothing on them but their own hands and use it to make payments in just three seconds…. read more
(Natural News) The Russian president has become the latest person to warn of the dangers of artificial intelligence (AI), actually predicting that whoever masters the technology first can rule the world.
Addressing students last week, Vladimir Putin said that there are legitimate concerns about AI and that its development will produce “colossal opportunities and threats that are difficult to predict now.”
Going further, Putin warned that “the one who becomes the leader in this sphere will be the ruler of the world.”
He added: “Artificial intelligence is the future, not only for Russia but for all humankind,” according to Russia Today…. read more
The Bible says a time will come when a global dictator will require everyone on earth to receive a mark on the right hand or the forehead (Revelation 13:16). Those without the mark won’t be able to buy or sell anything (Revelation 13:17). For centuries, Christians have wondered how this will even be possible. But in recent years, the rise of advanced technology has given us a glimpse as to how it might occur.
New technologies have driven endless speculation about what the mark will be. Some think it will be an implantable microchip. Others think it will be a visible tattoo. Still others think it will involve bar codes or RFID chips. And on and on. The fact is, we don’t know. And it won’t be known until the mark actually appears.
However, we can know this – the technology is here to make such a mark possible. To control every buy and sell transaction in the world, the Antichrist will need to set up a system capable of tracking every transaction. And thanks to modern technology, we can easily envision such a system. Much of the foundation for one is in place. Electronic payments are already a way of life, and they foreshadow the coming of a cashless society. In fact, not only is a cashless society possible – it’s inevitable…. read more
Living His Word believes that the Holy Bible is infallible, in capable of error. Change is occurring rapidly, and if you’re not prepared then what are you going to do? God is speaking in so many ways! The one Worlders are wanting control over money, people, land and power. The following describes those who will be in control of the government, the economics and the religion.
During the tribulation there will be three players in control. This chapter among others describes who they are and what they control. 1. The Dragon – devil 2. Beast from Sea – Antichrist 3. Beast from Land – False Prophet There is the dragon. That is the Devil. He will give his authority and power to the Antichrist and the False Prophet… read more
New biometric tracking methods seem to be rolled out by the day for policing, travel, banking, medical applications, and beyond.
February of last year I covered a development by a company called Chaotic Moon that was seeking “total integration” with their Tech Tats which they envisioned could be used to replace wallets, as well as to monitor your vital signs:
“We carry wallets around and they are so vulnerable. With the tech tattoo you can carry all your information on your skin and when you want your credit card information or your ID, you can pull that up automatically through the system
“Rather than going to the doctor once a year for your physical, this tech tattoo can be something you put on your body once a year and it monitors everything that they would do in a physical and it sends that to your doctor, and if there’s an issue they can call you,” Schneider said… read more
opinion: Once again they claim that this is good for you, but if you know the Truth then you know this is a lie. Do we want people to be healthy? Of course but this goes beyond being healthy. This is them getting into your personal life and preparing for the Antichrist who will be given authority to rule here during the tribulation. This is preparing for people to be open in accepting a mark on their body. Are you into the newest and latest tech stuff?
We are not sure if Believer’s are aware of this but you are not to tattoo your bodies, cut your bodies or make any markings on your bodies. The bible says: Leviticus 19:28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord. and just in case you say this is the old testament and it does not apply to me then apply this: Matthew 5:17 Do not think that I have come to do away with or undo the Law or the Prophets; I have come not to do away with or undo but to complete and fulfill them.
The march continues to accelerate toward a future of biometric ID for all travel.
Regular readers might know that over the past several months I’ve been covering some disturbing developments at airports in the U.S. and internationally that seem to show an acceleration of the plan to use biometric identification in a variety of ways.
On May 19th I reported on a new program initiated by Delta Airlines at Minneapolis-St. Paul airport to have automated baggage kiosks for “priority customers” that will first scan a traveler’s passport, then their face in order to match identity to checked luggage. It was promoted as a “pilot program” that Delta launched to seek customer feedback in the hope that it could be rolled out more widely in the future. That program has now entered phase 2 at Reagan National Airport with biometric boarding passes for rewards members…. read more
opinion: They are pushing biometric to be complete and everywhere by 2020.
The maker of the Roomba robotic vacuum, iRobot, has found itself embroiled in a privacy row after its chief executive suggested it may begin selling floor plans of customers’ homes, derived from the movement data of their autonomous servants.
“There’s an entire ecosystem of things and services that the smart home can deliver once you have a rich map of the home that the user has allowed to be shared,” said Colin Angle, iRobot’s boss.
That possibility has led to a shift in direction from the company technologically. While all of the housecleaning robots in its range are capable of navigating around a room, only the most advanced machines it makes do so by creating a mental map of the space; its dumber bots simply move almost randomly until they’re pretty sure they’ve covered the whole area… read more
Technology is something everyone has from cell phones, smart refrigerators, smart washer & dryers, smart t.v., smart cars and the list goes on. At what cost are you paying to give away your life moments? There is NO PRIVACY in smart technology!!! We use Brave and Epic browsers to protect when we use the internet. We also use Startpage and Duck Duck Go for search privacy. These companies say they protect our privacy from the ones who want our IP address, location and each page we go to on the web. Did you know that each time you talk on your phone or send out a text message or upload a picture to social media that this is being shared with the government? This has been happening for years but now they are adding a computer to connect with your smart computers to upload all the data you send out to their databases to keep.
The only thing that is tangible is what God has given you. No ONE can TAKE that away from you. All these tangible objects and stuff will disappear but “…but my words shall not pass away“.
Mathew 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Love this quote by Corrie Ten Boom “…For that which is in your heart can never be taken from you“. [Tramp For The Lord]
———> The UN wants a universal digital ID for your data, Toys spying on your kids, Privacy is taken and we give it, artificial intelligence taking over, they are wanting and pushing for each person to have an ID, They are using the blockchain to achieve this goal.
What is blockchain – The distributed transaction ledger used in Bitcoin and other virtual currency platforms. There is no central repository for the transactions. A new block of transactions can be created by any participant via the Bitcoin mining process (see Bitcoin). Not Just for Bitcoin Because the blockchain algorithm provides an unalterable and robust list of rightful ownership, both the public and private sectors are exploring blockchain-like techniques for systems other than digital currencies. By recording transactions without a middleman, performance is greatly improved. a.k.a. SUPER COMPUTER
Immutable – not able to be changed
Oh my goodness!! Do you understand the replications of this. Do you see? By 2018 all cellphones will have biometrics and by 2020 they want all simple phones obsolete. They are forcing us to use biometrics to obtain our identity. By 2030 they want everyone to have an ID.
