So far, we've seen Amazon One technology in some of its stores, and more will be available soon. However, it doesn't appear that Amazon intends to limit its technology to itself, as it has already found its first third-party customer, AXS Digital Ticket.
Amazon began using palm scanning technology in September 2020 with the opening of Amazon Go stores. Since then, tech giant Amazon One has expanded to more than 60 stores, providing a convenient way to pay for your food and merchandise. Now, you also see it as a way to enter the Colorado Red Rocks runway, where AXS is in charge of the process.
To use Amazon One to enter the Red Rocks Amphitheater event, participants must first associate their AXS phone ID with Amazon One. When you're done, go to the standalone Amazon One ticket holder, swipe one or both palms, and you'll be allowed to attend the event. Ticket stands will be available outside and inside the hall, and the entry process will take less than a minute. AXS CEO Brian Perez said. “We are also very excited to bring Amazon One to our customers and our industry when fast, convenient and contactless ticketing solutions are needed.”
Amazon declares that even if you use Amazon One's palm scanning technology at a third-party site, your Amazon One ID and data cannot be accessed by anyone other than Amazon.
Currently, the only place you can sign in with your Amazon One is the Red Rocks Amphitheater. However, the company is currently implementing palm scanning technology with other potential partners. Amazon previously announced its palm scanning technology by offering $10 coupons to people who have linked their palm to an Amazon user account. The uproar has caused US lawmakers to raise questions about how the company securely stores this information. Respondents expected an answer by August 26, but we don't know the details or even if Amazon will answer the questions.
