There are more than 6,000 exhibitors registered and about 500,000 visitors are expected to pass through the doors.

The following are two highlights to give you an idea of what is in store:

PALM READER
Fujitsu has launched a “Palm Vein” scanner which can identify people without any direct contact.
The company speculates that the scanner could be used by bank customers to withdraw funds from cash points with a single hand gesture.
The device uses infrared light to scan the palm vein, creating a map of individualsÂ’ hands to check the unique vein layout to identify users.
Data about your hand layout can be stored on a computer or on a bank card.
