Re: How big is this?
@batye

Remember they are pitching this to the enterprise market, which may have some stricter security needs than consumers. They might just put up with less convienience for more security.

They have had a long time to try and develop it, and it at least is a different approach to biometrics that can cut down false positives.

Re: How big is this?
Oh. I just saw the video of how (and how NOT) to use this palm reader... and it looks kinda clumsy to me.

Hand guides? That doesn't seem very elegant. And I wonder how well it works for kid-sized palms? I can also imagine kids smashing the sensor whereas I've seen pretty young kids use FaceID without a problem.

Color me unimpressed?

I think its around 2 inches by 2 inches.

The palm is held over the camera at a distance, maybe 4 inches.

How big is this?
I'm not a huge fan of biometrics -- since it doesn't have much legal protection, among other problems. But how big is a palm reader? If it's the same size as the "biggest palm" -- that seems too big to me to be convenient for anything other than a desktop application. But if it's just a tiny camera that can scan your palm from a distance somehow.. that could work, but then it would also be much creepier since your palm could be scanned from a distance without your knowledge?
