BREUKELEN - The Dutch supermarket chain Albert Heijn is launching an experiment Tuesday whereby customers will be able to pay by placing their fingers on a scanner.

The experiment is taking place in the supermarket's branch in the town of Breukelen.

Customers who want to take part must first register by providing an identity card, bank pass and fingerprint. Some supermarkets in Germany already use a similar system.

    perhaps the supermarket chain should first accept more common and logical forms of payment, such as credit cards before leading ahead of its time with a such a ludacris and pointless concept.
