The Tech will hand out “Inny" awards at each DEMO conference to demonstrators with particularly inspired products that museum-goers will be able to explore first hand. These products will be displayed at a special "DEMO@TheTech" EnCounter area of the museum that offers hands-on, facilitated experiences with the newest and most impactful technologies around.

Demo Says

There’s no more simple way to tender payment than the touch of a button, and that's what Pay By Touch Online offers consumers. A quick fingerprint scan triggers a debit or credit payment at the checkout or online.

In regional trials, consumers have overwhelmingly embraced the Pay By Touch Online system. And because it reduces fraud, speeds checkout, and requires little or no change to transaction processing, Pay By Touch Online is being adopted by national supermarket chains. If early trials are an accurate indicator, it won’t be long before we can leave our wallets at home and simply Pay By Touch.
