Kinect-Powered Online Banking Logs You In With Your Face And Voice

February 25, 2012

The Lithuanian company ETRONIKA has developed a Microsoft Kinect-based online banking application that recognizes your face and voice to log in to your account and lets you control options with gestures.

An updated version of this system was presented at Finovate Europe 2012 in London earlier this month. The company uses their own and third party Biometric User Authentication and Identification Technology to identify the user. The application analyzes your face and voice to log you in and gesture recognition is used to control the software. You can scroll through the different services, such as accounts, balance, statements, savings and offers, with a swipe of your hand.

As an additional security measure, when you make a payment you must verify it by entering your PIN code into your phone. If you step back or leave the area observed by the Kinect sensor you will be disconnected from your online banking session.
