After New York City introduces a cutting-edge identity-scanning technology in 2023, citizens can not only unlock doors and make purchases at the touch of a finger, they can be tracked by the police 24/7. Crime drops almost instantly, but an unexpected side effect occurs – people start popping up in two places at once.
