Chinese Schools Are Using ‘Smart Uniforms’ To Track Their Students’ Locations

The Verge reports:

Chinese schools are now tracking the exact location of their students using chip-equipped “smart uniforms” in order to encourage better attendance rates, according to a report from state-run newspaper The Global Times. Each uniform has two chips in the shoulders which are used to track when and where the students enter or exit the school, with an added dose of facial recognition software at the entrances to make sure that the right student is wearing the right outfit (so you can’t just have your friend, say, wear an extra shirt while you go off and play hooky). Try to leave during school hours? An alarm will go off….

There are additional features, too, according to a report from The Epoch Times: the chips can apparently detect when a student has fallen asleep in class, and allow students to make payments (using additional facial or fingerprint recognition to confirm the purchase). The uniforms are being used in 10 schools in China’s Guizhou Province region, and apparently have been in use for some time — according to Lin Zongwu, principal of No. 11 School of Renhuai, over 800 students in his school have been wearing the smart uniforms since 2016.



Teaching MBA & Open Source In The New Year

Sick of trying to learn stuff in colleges, institutes & also Universities. The people who teach there are themselves not experienced at anything other than max to max playing Slideshows.

And in my plans for the next year – 2019 I had plans to self educate myself to the extreme ends in:
1. Open Source
2. MBA (I have shortlisted around 200+ subjects)

And now I have decided to share all my learnings on this new web portal of mine.
iWebonix.com is here to stay and rock and roll.
I had request God for 1 more opportunity and he has answered – so its amazing for me.
Lets see what I can contribute to the online community.



Found it – Cost Calculator

Was working on the website of WebcomStudio. We needed a quote calculator for dynamic quotes.
Searched everywhere, could not find much.
The estimated time to develop from scratch was too high.
Had give up as could not find much of great value.

Then as usual came CodeCanyon.net to my rescue.
Found a lot of options and found the one solution that I needed the most.
Its called Cost Calculator. You can also have a look here
It simply rocks.

Some other free & paid options are:
1. Simple Price Calculator
2. Calculated Fields Form
3. NexForms



Chatbot – WordPress Plugin – Just $31

Was searching for CHATBOT everywhere but could not find something for WordPress. What I found everywhere was about FaceBook chatbots. After sometime I gave up. Again next day started working on ChatBot research and luckily found something cool on Codecanyon.net.

It suits the bill. Is only costing $31. And is a WordPress plugin.
All great features.
Now I just wanted to try the demo, which was also available.
And I tested it thoroughly. And I liked it.

Will be buying it asap.
