Getting a “Triple Zinger” from KFC might only take a simple finger in the not too distant future. A pilot will soon be underway in a Sacramento, California Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant to test automated biometric fingerprint technology. Utah-based International Automated Systems will be installing its OrderXCEL patent-pending technology, which incorporates its patented biometric technology. Using the OrderXCEL, a fast-food customer can enter an order on a touch-pad screen and pay with cash, check, credit, or debit card — all without the need for a counterperson to take the transaction. IAS’ patented technology can automatically digitize a fingerprint small enough to fit onto the magnetic stripe of a credit card. The company says its product has widespread potential in many industries, including homeland security and airport security. For more information: visit: www.iaus.com.
