Prophecy Sign: The "Mark of the Beast"
It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV
Research Shows the Growth of Biometric Tech
A new study from the research and consultancy group Goode Intelligence underlined the importance of biometric research and technology. The research predicts that over 1.1 billion consumers will be using mobile biometric technology by 2020. The research also claims that in the same year, over 16 billion online biometric payments will be made. Goode Intelligence has studied the biometric technologies for some time, and has continually underlined the importance of innovation in the biometric field. Although there have been relatively few developments that have made headlines, over 100 million mobile users utilize biometrics on a daily basis for authentication purposes.
