MoCo rec centers to scan finger veins
Three Montgomery County recreation centers will ask residents for a hand come January. Well, actually just a finger.
The center will begin using biometric finger vein scanners to access members' recreation accounts, The Gazette reports.
The scanners look like a computer mouse. They are able to read the unique vein pattern below a person's skin to create a code.
The scanners are part of a pilot program that officials hope will allow them to replace the plastic access cards used in all 33 recreation facilities and save the county about $50,000 annually.
