One Japanese Bank has come up with an innovative idea, designed to help people, in the event of disaster, something that can happen frequently, in their less than stable land area, where earthquakes, can be almost everyday happenings. This new service being launched, 'only in the event of some large disaster, is about to be offered by Ogaki Kyoritsu Bank, The new service offers 'Palm Scanning' at suitable cash machines, where customers will be able to access loans of up to two million yen or $17,000; £11,000. You do wonder how long it will take the 'scammers' to gain a suitable access method, or might it be foolproof?

I would not allow a bank to start identifying me by iris scans or fingerprints or handprints or even blood type. I suppose that is mostly because I don't have a lot of money I need access to.

Finding an ATM carrying that amount of funds,in the thousands they're talking about over here, might be difficult...they're usually more empty than full...

This remind me a horror movie, where someone cut the hand of someone to have the fingerprints. Scary!

Or Scammers churning out hundreds of palms on 3D printers...just another reason Signatures could become obsolete, as mentioned in another post

If it works it has to be a good idea - if you've lost your bank cards and have no other means of gaining emergency funds it could be a real life-saver.

Just can't imagine any ATM's over here carrying the thousands they're talking...a few quid and they're empty!!

This has to be one of the most bizarre ideas that I have ever come across. Nevertheless, it may prove to be successful, just sounds ridiculous.
