The human palm is a large area with skin lines and creases at wide range on the spatial scale. When the palm is presented to a camera from a distance of six inches (15 cm) or more, many cameras already installed in devices such as phones, laptops and ATMs can capture the palm skin in great detail. These palm lines are highly unique.

The PalmID Capture Module uses sophisticated machine vision techniques to convert RGB video of the palm into a template for authentication. The PalmID Matching Module can run server side or locally. In just 10-100 milliseconds, it can match the authentication attempt against the enrollment template, using proprietary algorithms extensively tested against tens of thousands of palm images.

– Placing your future in your hand


PalmID works on any device with a standard camera (resolution 0.3 megapixel or above). It converts the palm image to a unique signature that is, for all practical purposes, impossible to fake. Unlike modern face-recognition solutions, it doesn’t get stumped by different lighting conditions, and requires less light to function than produced by the average device screen! Even dirty hands and scars won’t prevent correct identification – as long as a portion of the palm lines are visible, the user can be accurately authenticated.


PalmID benefits from an enormous market opportunity: with 600 million entry-level phones, 700 million desktops, laptops and tablets and 105 million AR/VR products devices in users’ hands. In addition, 40 billion online transactions take place each year. All of these numbers will continue to grow dramatically in next five years. .
