Touch Buy / Electronic Systems

Touch Buy
Touch Buy

Touch Buy improves the shopping process by paying special cares to the elders, pregnant women, and disabled. Touch Buy uses fingerprints as personal identification, shoppers can scan their fingerprints for merchandise and pick up at check-out. This design eliminates the need of carrying merchandise, often more than one, which is very inconvenient for the elders, pregnant women, and disabled. Through Touch Buy, we create a shopping environment that is more caring and convenient and thus increases the target users’ self-esteem while enjoying the pleasant shopping experience.
