[NEW!] Touché, the new biometric system for payments, first to be used by Grignoter Wine Bar

Behold, introducing the new biometric system technology for payments, allowing you to make payment with just the touch of 2 fingers! With biometric sensors that are FBI certified, your unique fingerprint ID will be hashed, encrypted and stored in a securecloud database, making this a highly accurate matching system with false positives at the rate of less than one-in-a-trillion! There is also an anti-spoofing technology that ensures fingerprints are real and the person is indeed present. If Touché is implemented everywhere, there is no need for cards, cash or even your wallet when you go out!

This new technology will be customised for an upcoming feature of the POSB Smart Buddy programme to facilitate students making payments in school. It eliminates the need for cash, cards, wearables, vouchers or smart wallets by allowing payment through just two fingers.

How does this work? Students just need to register their 2 fingers one time on the device and link it to the POSB Smart Buddy programme to their parents’ account. Then, students can pay using their 2 fingers at any Touché device in the school. This allows parents to know what their children are buying, supervise their spending as well as set limits to their daily expenditures.

There are a few places now uses Touché, one of which is Grignoter, Southeast Asia’s first wine bar endorsed by Bordeaux Wine Council (Le Conseil Interprofessionnel du Vin de Bordeaux, CIVB). They offer a selection of rare wines from Europe, as well as a menu of French dishes and Franco-Asian snacks.

Some of the well received fusion dishes include the PAN SEARED HOKKAIDO SCALLOP (Cost: 16.00++) that comes with Jerusalem Artichoke and drenched with delicious black truffle sauce.

For the Asian favourites, go for the CHARCOAL GRILLED LAMB CUTLET (Cost: $26.00++) which is well marinated with satay sauce, an interesting yet good tasting combination! Comes with salad at the side.

Touché will also be available at CÉ LA VI, Erwin’s Gastrobar, KPO, Symmetry, Xiao Ya Tou and many other Café and Bars in the near future! Stay tuned to their website for more updated news!
