Time and Attendance Using Swipe Cards
Technology is increasingly weaving its way into our daily lives, and most of it is helpful and makes life easier. But sometimes a new gadget or program sounds like a good idea when we see or hear about it then turns out to be impractical or unusable when applied to real life. For example retina scanning in science fiction movies seems cool to consider where highest security is needed, but can be the wrong attendance tracking system in situations that require speed to administer, companies that are constrained by budget or time attendance needs such as that that don’t require such extreme security.
Impractical technologies such as the clumsy (if not silly) “wearable” computing devices may have sounded like a good idea initially. But attaching a tiny “screen” to glasses and strapping on some device to your body so you can have computing access everywhere you go doesn’t make sense for many to use day-to-day (unless you’re an extreme nerd – no offense). This of course may change in the future as there seems to be no shortage of inventors working on wearable computing technologies and miniaturizing components. Continue reading
