BioSec marketing tool is a biometric game for PCs
BioSec Group has revealed an innovative marketing tool, a biometric game for PCs called BS Palm Pong.
Based on the popular “Pong” game from the 70’s, the player’s palm veins becomes the controller. Players move the ball without touching it by simply putting their hand above the vein scanner.
The Hungarian biometrics company bills the game as a fun way to learn more about an innovative technology and dispel myths and misconceptions surrounding the industry.
“We know that if it is something different and new, like biometrics, people tend to keep distance,” explained BioSec Group CEO Péter Györgydeák. “This is why we decided to come up with a playful alternative, which brings people closer to even a next generation technology like ours.”
While BioSec’s game is not likely to be the PC game of the year, the company has found a way to demonstrate the simplicity and appeal of palm vein recognition technology.
The game first premiered at last November’s Fujitsu Forum in Munich.
Last week it was announced that Microsoft will offer palm vein authentication as part of Windows Hello, a key biometric authentication feature of Windows 10 that enables people to use their face, iris or fingerprint biometrics to unlock and gain access to Windows 10 devices.
