Ogaki Kyoritsu Bank in Japan is introducing Japan's first ATM that will let you withdraw cash just by scanning your hand.  While not the first to use extra biometrics to verify your identity, its the first to work without needing a card.

Customers go to the bank to provide some manual verification the first time and their palm, then from there on its have palm will get cash and go, mostly.  When using the ATM of the Gifu Prefecture-based bank they will be required to enter their date of birth then hold their palm over the reader and enter their four-digit ID number.  Perhaps this is in case someone steals your palm, an extra layer of security never hurts.

The bank is hoping it will help provide people with access to their cash should they lose their card, unless that is, you have a Luke Skywalker's robotic hand.
