Fingers Getting Chopped Off, Diebold To Switch From Fingerprint To Palm-Vein?

From Businessweek:

Worried about ATM fraud, several Brazilian banks began rolling out machines equipped with fingerprint readers. Undeterred, criminals began severing the fingers of account holders to gain access to their money, says Frank Natoli, chief innovation officer at Diebold. One of the world’s top suppliers of ATMs, Diebold is working with some of the country’s banks to switch over to palm-vein-recognition systems.

Anyone have any color or experience related to this?
