“Spread your fingers.” “Capturing ...” “Remove your hand.”

It is a machine called PulseWallet and it scans the veins in your right hand before charging a payment to your credit card.

PulseWallet is on display at CES 2014, a global consumer electronics and consumer technology trade show in Las Vegas. Its brand-new technology allows consumers to pay by scanning their palms.

A point-of-sale product that incorporates biometrics, PulseWallet is a credit card terminal and register with a built-in biometric palm reader. Inside the reader is an infrared Fujitsu camera that photographs your vein pattern. Then the device matches this with your credit card information.

PulseWallet CTO and co-founder Matt Saricicek says he was wondering, “Why should you have to present anything to make a payment -- and to prove your identity -- other than yourself?” This question marked the beginning of PulseWallet.

The whole package was announced on Jan. 7 at CES, and goes on sale next month. The price has not yet been specified.
